Fairly easy 1.8 mile round trip hike. The view at the overlook is breathtaking - you'll be able to see the nearby Cohutta Wilderness and the surrounding towns of Eton and Chattsworth. Be prepared for uneven terrain and a bit of a steep climb. If you take the trail from the overlook to the fire tower, you will need to climb quite a few metal stairs.
