While our visit didn't have the best weather, it was still worth the time and effort. It is a very secluded spot, but there we were not alone. The placid water below is very beautiful at sunset and seeing the shores of the upper peninsula...More

In Door County for a fall weekend and happened to be here around sunset. Very beautiful area and great views. Be sure to have your camera to catch a glorious sunset photo.

There are a couple of short hikes/lookout areas in the park, easy enough for most all abilities. The overlook is pretty neat, but the more natural trail that takes you out onto the bluffs is really amazing. The trees along this hike have the most...More

The overlook was cool, overlooking the bluff. However the trail was barely ovet 1 mile and took about 25 minutes. I like longer hikes. Good for family with children or pets

Nice little park with a great view. There are some steps to reach the view, and a very short stretch of mildly uneven grounds to reach the walkway at the very edge of the cliff. Safety railings and fence are in place so it's safe...More

It's a great setting for a dog. There are no signs banning their entry and no rangers or sheriff's deputies in the area.
