My husband and I started at the overlook the first time that we did this hike, but we found that if you take Park road C towards Buecher and turn down Hammond road to the right that you can park at the trail there and begin the hike in solitude. This is one of the most peaceful hikes I have been on. At times all you can hear it the wind in the trees. It's wonderful.
