This short, well-maintained trail is suitable for hikers of all abilities. The route requires an unhurried forty-five-minute walk, crossing the crest of Romney Ridge to reach a collection of stony outcrops at the overlook area. Beyond the overlook unfolds a scene of rugged splendor, with talus-strewn couloirs and granite faces rising along the length of Blodgett Canyon and to the crest of Printz Ridge.

I was not very excited by the trail itself. Though well maintained and easily followed, it lacks the variety of some of the more interesting canyon trails. Add that to a series of repetitious switchbacks and it lulls you into a complacency that is hard to shake. The overlook, however, quickly dispels any doldrums that might linger! The view is (forgive me for using a trite description) breathtaking! No other vantage I know gives you quite the same flavor of the immenseness of Selway-Bitterroot wilderness.
