Once you’ve taken in the views, pick up the trail left of the main bluff. From here you’ll come across a smaller waterfall (weather providing). The trail follows a rocky bluff line offering more striking views of the valley. Continue along the trail until you hit a three-way intersection. Turn right and hop onto the Pedestal Rocks Trail. The Pedestal Rocks are large jagged rock spires carved away by erosion. The trail runs 2.2 miles, and for the first mile or so you’ll be in the woods. Look for a sign that says you’re halfway through the loop. Shortly after this, the Pedestal Rocks will appear. As the name suggests, pedestals are spires that are skinnier on the bottom and larger on top. There are several established and fenced-in overlooks in the next section of the trail that offer views of these majestic rocks formations.
Autumn is a wonderful time to hit the trail, but if you want the best views of the pedestals, we recommend going in winter or early spring. Some hikers like to climb down near the base of the pedestals to explore the caves, but be careful, as it's steep and can be slippery. After exploring the pedestals, continue until you hit Arch Rock. From here, it’s less than a mile back to the trailhead.
