16.3 miles from Rest Stop 6
This 1.3 mile trail offers a scenic 1 - 1 1/2 hour hike from Kinzua Beach to Rimrock Overlook. From the overlook visitors and hikers will be treated to outstanding views of the Allegheny Reservoir and surrounding hillsides.
Visitors to the Overlook can explore the area's giant sandstone boulders, crefasses and rock outcrops. A set of stone steps, with handrail, allow visitors to climb "up" the boulders to the overlooks.
The majority of the trail is level with a gradual elevation change. As you climb up from the Kinzua Beach, the trail becomes steeper. The access road for the Overlook, from State Route 59, is designated as a 2.5 mile cross country ski trail during winter activity season
The trail passes through an area heavily forested with oak. The mast from the oak trees provides food for many wildlife, including bear, deer, grouse and turkey.
Rimrock Overlook offers scenic views of Kinzua Bay, which extends southwest from the main body of the Allegheny Reservoir. Steps from the parking area to the overlook take visitors down a 200 foot elevation drop.
