Heading south from Blowing Rock, this overlook is the last one before the Linn Cove Viaduct. There are no views from the overlook itself, but a short walk along the flat footpath heading toward the Viaduct will provide a wide vista. To the south is the Viaduct (and a great spot for photos with it in the background). To the north, additional sections of the Parkway and its beautiful stonework are visible. Huge views of the valleys below are especially gorgeous in fall, though it’s recommended to visit this popular spot on a weekday or very early morning during leaf season if you want to park at the overlook.
