The Overlook Trail at Blue Spruce Park in Indiana, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.3 mile one-way trail that heads uphill from the parking lot on Groft Rd up to the Vista Ridge Trail at the park. This trail can be a bit tricky since there are at least two unmarked trail junctions before you hit the Vista Ridge Trail, but if you stay left at each of them, you'll find your way. If you're heading downhill back to parking, make sure to stay right at each unmarked junction.

This trail may be more moderate in difficulty for those who don't hike often, but the elevation grade is mostly gradual as you hike up to the Vista Ridge Trail.

Despite the trail's name, there is no overlook on this trail. Dogs and biking are both allowed.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
