The abrupt, spectacular escarpment of Doughton Park plunges 2,000 feet from rocky cliffs into Basin Cove, once a remote mountain community now reverting to wilderness. An easy paved trail reaches a view of Caudill Cabin far below, and a rugged but short scramble leads to a spectacular crag—both from the same trailhead.
