"Hike the Yellow Rock Trail in the fall for the best views that it can offer during prime fall foliage season. Don’t be fooled though: This 2.7-mile lollipop hike offers some great views year-round. Hikers who make their way to the Yellow Rock Overlook will not only be rewarded with great views of the park below, they may also catch glimpses of birds of prey that circle the valley in this area."

This trail is definitely worth it to see the views from the top of the valley. The trail itself goes through some green forests with many rock formations, creeks and small waterfalls. I went in the spring and it's pretty with the Dogwood trees. Just beware there can be a lot of people on the weekends.
