After starting out on the Wendy trail, we will BRIEFLY hang out at a bench that has a fantastic view of Sycamore Canyon, before continuing on another mile or so to the Overlook. It's a steady climb, but not steep. We can again hang out at the overlook and then return by the same route. We will need flashlights for about the last half hour of the hike.
