|Chute Pond Overlook Trail
This short, moderately steep trail leads to the top of a rock
outcrop that features five vistas. Three of the vistas overlook
Chute Pond, one looks over a Forest Service tree plantation, and
one looks north along State Highway 32 with Bagley Rapids on the
west and Green Lake on the east. At the northernmost vista, look
north to see the last remaining Forest Service fire lookout tower
almost six miles away at Mountain. Looking south from the southernmost
vista you can see the radio tower on Suring Hill, about eight
miles away. Be sure to bring your binoculars on this hike!
Directions: From the town of Mountain, take State Highway
32 south for 3-1/2 miles to Parkway Drive and turn right (west).
Follow the signs to Scenic Overlook.
Trail Length: 2/3 mile.
Difficulty: Moderate to difficult.
