Sandy Cliff Overlook Hike

Check out one of the best views on the lake with Park Ranger Jamie Cameron. The Sandy Cliff Overlook Trail is an easy, 1/2-mile route through a section of the Catawba River Area that received a restorative prescribed fire in late 2014 and again in early 2018. Come see for yourself the amazing habitat improvement that can be achieved through a thoughtful prescribed burning program and bring your camera to record the awesome overlook view of Lake James. Meet at the Catawba River Area parking lot at 10 a.m.
