Experience the Northwood’s autumn splendor as you’ve never seen it before! Enjoy a spectacular panoramic view from the newly constructed Squirrel Hill Overlook. This half-mile out and back hike starts at the Chalet parking lot and follows the gentler “family ski slope” up to the summit. There’s a 170’ elevation gain so set your own pace and stop at the naturalist stations to learn some fall forest facts. As you pass underneath the historic fire tower, catch your breath and prepare to be wowed!
Road access to overlook will be available if you are unable to hike to the top. Squirrel Hill will be the site of many exciting developments and we can’t wait to share the expansive views and upcoming projects with you all.
Due to Covid-19 safety precautions, restroom facilities will not be available. We ask that you maintain a 6’ distance between groups and wear a mask if distancing is not possible. Hand sanitizer will be available at the rest stops.
