From here you can see a rare Skyline Drive view, a look southwestward down the length of the Blue Ridge. Many of Shenandoah National Park's highest peaks are visible here, including Stony Man, the northernmost Blue Ridge peak to rise above 4,000 feet.

Much of what you see, especially to the east and west, is not in the park. Private woodland and pastures are being replaced by homes and commercial properties. The view from Shenandoah's Skyline Drive is changing.
