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.
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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
