An easy, flat day hike or very easy overnighter with a stunning view. The Murphy Point Trail used to be Murphy Point Road, which went to within 0.2 mile of the overlook. In 1996 the NPS converted most of the road to a trail starting at the Murphy Trailhead. (Some older maps may still show it as a road.) This created a nice hike with an absolutely stunning view
