“the perfect view of the white river valley”

1.5 miles/2.4 km (round trip) Moderate to strenuous. After meandering through a canyon, this trail climbs a log ladder and follows a ledge to "the Notch" for a dramatic view of the White River Valley. Trail begins at the south end of the Door and Window parking area. Watch for drop-offs. Not recommended for anyone with a fear of heights. Treacherous during or after heavy rains.

Great trail. There is a bit of climbing. Watch small children. The ladder is not bad going up, but you have to watch your step as you start down. Beware of snakes. We came across two snakes making their way across the path.
