This lookout is as close as 200 feet from the parking area, depending where you park, and accessible across level paved walkways.
We expect to stay for at least two hours and maybe longer depending on the flight. You are welcome to stay longer or shorter as you wish!
Dress for the weather but in layers so you can adapt if the exposed sun is too warm or if breezes above the river get too chilly. Bring water or other beverage.
Bring binoculars or let us know in advance if you want to borrow one or more from SMRA to use during this field trip.
