Margaret Hill Overlook
The highlights of the Caneel and Margaret Hill Trail are the summits of the two hill from where magnificent views can be enjoyed. At the top of Caneel Hill there is a viewing platform, but the view at the summit of Margaret Hill, lacking any man-made structures, is obscured by bush. Nonetheless a little bit east of the actual summit there is a short spur trail that leads to a large flat rock from where there are commanding views to the west and south.
If your destination is the Margaret Hill Overlook the shortest and easiest way to access it is by taking the spur trail off the Water Catchment Trail at the Centerline Road trailhead.
It is really a specially beautiful place to be. If you’re hiking the Caneel Margaret Hill Trail, keep an eye out for the spur trail to the rock outcropping. Don’t miss this one!
On that beautiful clear weekend afternoon, I took the easy way up to the overlook and shot the following video:
