Something not right?

Description

Pull off area by a scenic overlook and trailhead off of Top Drive, aka F447, Top Rd. or Highlands Scenic Byway. Access by Collierstown Rd. is limited to vehicles 25ft or less. Road is decently maintained forest service gravel, though there were some ruts getting into the overlook. Site is probably best for vans, trucks, or RTTs. Didn't see any good space for ground tenting.

Spent 1 night before biking in the area. Had a few passersby overnight but nothing loud or disturbing. Beautiful views at sunrise. Lots of trash around, we filled a whole garbage bag before leaving it nice and tidy. No amenities, but Verizon cell service all across the mountain.

Small overlook at the pull off and a short trail to another overlook. Nearby Pete's Cave / North Mountain ridge trail at the intersection of F447, Collierstown, and Turnpike Rd leads to several great rocky overlooks too. There's also parking at that intersection though it's not as flat and gets more traffic.
