Buzzards Rock Overlook Trail


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.
