Quiet spot for a nice foto with river below and foliage behind. Near the Jordan hotel. Worth the quick detour.

Stopped on our foliage tour and got some great pictures. Highly recommended. Easy to hike around and can pictures from many angles.

Kevin, Not sure why the map goes to the ski resort. Actually, I don't remember including a map.
