This overlook gives an expansive view into the Yadkin Valley. The Yadkin River flows to the east and Rock House Mountain is way down the valley. The headwaters of the Yadkin River are between the ridge running from Chestnut Mountain and Wheat Patch Mountain and the ridge running from Warrior Mountain and Jerry Mountain. I-40 runs in the valley this side of the ridge running from Walker Top to Bolin Knob.
