Breezyview Overlook and Chickies Rock on the Susquehanna River in Lancaster County

On the western edge of Lancaster County there is a tremendous scenic overlook and rock outcropping that gives a stunning view of the Susquehanna River. The Breezyview Overlook and Chickies Rock are easy to access and well worth a stop. 
Breezyview Overlook is a part of Lancaster County's Chickies Rock Park. The overlook is roadside, meaning you can park right next to the overlook. Chickies Rock is just over a half mile drive north of this spot and requires a 15 minute small hike/nature walk to the outcropping.
Chickies Rock is the rock outcropping on the slope heading towards the river. Also notice the electrified rail line heading along the river. This line is part of Amtrak's Keystone Corridor and the former Main Line of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
The gazebo at the Breezyview Overlook is a favorite site for weddings, picnics, and more.
If you are driving through the area, this is certainly an area you should check out. The Turkey Hill Experience is located right down the hill, along with the stunning Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge. There is a rail trail through the park on the former Pennsylvania Railroad Columbia Branch. There is an abandoned tunnel, the Point Rock/Chickies Tunnel, that is located on the trail.
