Buzzards Rock Overlook at Michaux State Forest in Pennsylvania is a great spot to get views of Michaux and Pennsylvania's Appalachian mountains.

This trail is as long or as short as you want to make it, but it's essentially just a couple hundred feet. After you park, you'll notice a small trail to the south of the parking lot that leads down into a boulder field/rockfall. You can get better pictures of the mountains from this lookout point compared to the parking lot.

You can venture further down the boulders and follow other small trails around the lookout, but you don't need to go much further than 0.1 miles total to get great views here.

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!️
