Breezy View Overlook, Columbia, PA

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Lancaster PA RS134746A

On a windy late November day, I passed over the Chickies Hill between Marietta and Columbia, PA.  Shortly before Columbia, I stopped at the Breezy View Overlook.

       Just off Pennsylvania Route 441, the Overlook offers a spectacular view of the Susquehanna River.

"Breezy View" was an understatement on this windy November day - I had to stay away from the edge to make sure the wind wouldn't blow me over the precipice, which is steeper than it looks in the photograph!

                                 The Susquehanna Heritage Trail runs along the overlook.

                      A picnic area serves as a pleasant place for a repast in warmer weather.

George, you probably couldn't find my camera any more - it's an older Canon with only 2 megapixels!  On the  internet, that seems to be enough.  Thanks for your comments -

Beautiful pictures, Brian...friends of ours live in Lancaster and I love driving in the area; it's so beautiful.  Not sure where these pictures are in relation to where my friends live, but I do remember hiking along a railroad track and also seeing a gorgeous view of the river, similar to yours here.

Thanks for sharing!

Karen, the location of the photos is west of Lancaster on the Lancaster County side of the Susquehanna river, looking west to the York County side.  Marieatta (still on the Lancaster County side) is seen off to the right.

Thanks for visiting!

Brian - Wow look at that view.  It looks like you live in a great area. It must be incredible during the fall with all the foliage!

Sal, Lancaster County, PA is a great area!  This year the foliage wasn't quite as colorful as usual due to the dry weather.

Brian,

Great pictures.  I grew up in Pottsville, PA, just up the road from you and often miss Pennsylvania.  I drive through the Lancaster area about twice a year and absolutely love the area.  Thanks for putting some pictures of the area up and making my night.

Hi Martin,

I'm glad you enjoyed the photos!  Pottsville has some pretty country, too.

You do a nice job with your camera. It makes me want to come take a look at the area some day. You are right....it is scenic.

What great pics, but is that an actual wake I see on the water caused by the wind?

Todd, the water is actually very shallow in some places there.  There are rocks close to the surface, so a combination of the water flowing over the rocks, plus the wind, causes some small "rapids".

Brian, Those are awesome photos! I have been to Amish country and it's lovely. Is this area considered Amish country?

Hi Ginger,

This area is in western Lancaster County, PA, which is not part of the Amish area.  The Amish areas are mostly in the eastern part of the county.  Thanks for stopping by!
