Jakes Rock in the Fall

Wander on hardened paths through the woods to the overlook. Stand on the rock outcrop overlook to see expansive views of Jackson Bay on the Allehgeny Reservoir, Kinzua Dam and the surounding forest. 

As you walk look for the wide array of fungus in multiple colors that grows along the path.  Stop and wonder at the trees growing through, and sometimes on, the large boulders.  But beware of tree roots along the path.  Picnic in the shade of the trees after your walk.
