Please pack a picnic lunch as we will hike to the waterfall and enjoy lunch on the beautiful rocks. We will continue on to the scenic Buzzard’s Hill Overlook where the vista includes only mountains and valleys (no houses or roads visible). We will enjoy the wildflowers and wildlife that is visible from the trail along with time to reflect in a few moments of silence experiencing the scenic view at Buzzard’s Overlook.
