Plateau Point Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Take this walk if you are spending a layover day at Indian Garden or arrive to camp at Indian Garden with enough energy to take a 3-mile “sunset stroll.” One advantage of a late afternoon walk is that you will share the trail only with other backpackers, not with the many hikers embarking on the longest of the national park sanctioned dayhikes. Avoid this side trip if thunderstorms threaten, as the entire route is exposed."
