Yankee Horse Overlook Trail-Milepost 34.4 Professional Review and Guide

"This is a quintessential Parkway leg- stretcher trail. Great views of Wigwam Falls combine with an interesting exhibit about the logging railroads that carried off the region’s virgin timber.

As you climb stone steps, the trail rises and turns right onto railroad tracks across a log- supported bridge that spans gushing Wigwam Creek. The path goes left beyond the bridge, but don’t turn yet. Follow the tracks as the rails end and the ties continue. When the ties stop, keep going a short distance and see how the grade softens and the woods encroach."

The Wigwam Falls were more like a trickle because of the lack of rain. The railroad tracks make for a pretty cool photo opportunity.
