Ascent Trip ReportThis is the #2 Overlook at Starved Rock SP (counting from the SRSP Lodge). There are 12 (others are on my provisional peak list in La Salle County, Illinois). This overlook gave its name to the park, is the shortest hike <2 are drive-ups> to an overlook, and offers gorgeous views of the Illinois River. There is also a thought-provoking legend about a Native-American tribe being besieged on the rock by another tribe until they starved.
