  • A very good lookout in the blue mountains. Its has two ways to approach to. 1) Easy way is to just park your car in Evans lookout parking and check the lookout. 2) Other more adventurous way is to do a 2.5 hours of hike in the grand canyon. I have been there many times, always from the hrand canyon side. Love it always.
  • View is nice, but the hiking trails make it very very busy here. There are better lookouts close by, like anvil rock. If not planning on hiking, skip this one. Anvil rock will give you a almost 360 degree view.
