Not much of a trail, but the overlook is great. There are a few dispersed camp sites in this spot with great views a short walk away. Honestly, the overlook camp spot is nice but is so exposed you'll get battered with high winds. Finding a sheltered spot in the trees a bit lower is the way to go. This might become our "spot" to set up basecamp when visiting Moab again

1 for the off-road experience, but the one camp spot at the end overlooking Castle Valley, providing you can get it and do not have noisy neighbors, is one amazing camping location.
