Cliffs, Ridges and Views

Window Cliffs is a 275-acre state natural area located within the dissected portion of the Eastern Highland Rim, Window Cliffs is a prominent geological clifftop feature that consists of a very narrow, elongated ridge that lies in the neck of an incised meander of Cane Creek. While it is about 150 feet wide at its base, it is only a few feet wide on the narrow clifftop 200 feet above Caney Creek.

  • There is a 2.7 miles trail open for hiking. Please allow at least two and a half hours to three hours to complete the 5.4-mile roundtrip. Start your return hike one and a half hours before sunset. This trail is considered difficult to strenuous.
  • A round trip hike requires 18 creek crossings which can be challenging or impassable during high water as there are no bridges, only cables, and rock crossings. Water can, at times, begin to rise in the creek unexpectedly due to rain in the watershed. There will be times that the area is closed due to high water. Always check the weather reports before heading out.
  • The less you take on the hike the better. It is best to limit belongings to items that will fit in a small backpack. Keep your hands free.
  • Wear sturdy shoes that can get wet. Flipflops are not recommended.
  • Pets are not allowed within Window Cliffs State Natural Area for safety reasons.
