“The view is okay after a rather boring walk to get to it”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Make sure you wear the right shoes and don't go beyond the rock barriers. Over the last year there has been one fatality and several accidents since people just can't seem to heed the warnings to stay behind the rail.

The parking lot is generally crowded, the walk is not steep but rocky and not particularly scenic or nice. The final destination is a fairly good view of the Susquehanna River and the railroad tracks running along the shore. Do it once for the experience, but it's not really a repeat adventure.

“Awesome anytime of year”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

My children and I hike here once a month, and enjoy every minute of it. Parking is scarce, and easy to miss, but don't discount the view of the Susquehanna.....Its one of the best.....

“Don't Waste Your Time”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Unless you want to take photos of the Susquehanna River or watch idots fall off the Rock, it is not worth the time to stop.
