It's a decent hike to a really nice overlook. King Philip overlook is an 8 or so story ledge overlooking the Charles. Across from that is what appears to be a private driving range. Great picnic spot and worth the hike in. Feel free to pass on the Rocky Narrows Overlook... not nearly as much to see and nothing like the first overlook. Good hike for kids that can do 3 hours and 3-4 miles. Pack a lunch, eat at the overlook, and head back for a good family hike.
