Not much of a hike

It’s a great swimming hole though!

Fun hike

Great hike, although the views from some of the first few overlooks surpass those from Hay Rock in my opinion. Make sure to touch the rocks under the first powerlines with your hands. You can feel the electricity buzzing!

Great view and easy climb

Great spot for a sunset! The trail back down is easy to navigate even in the dark. You’ll want a car with some clearance, but I drove up here in a Volvo 960 with no issues.

One of my favorite places in the area

I love this place. It sees amazing sunsets and sunrises, and the precariously placed cabin offers a great space to relax while protected from the elements. While you’ll usually share a sunset here in good weather, most of the time you can expect to find solitude, especially on cold days or early mornings.

Fun hike with many beautiful views

It’s really nice to leave the crowds at The Cascades behind and continue on the Barney’s Wall. While the trail does have steep sections and one or two small creek crossings, it is not particularly hard. Be sure to take the extra spur trail to Upper Cascades before you head up the conservancy trail.
