The southeast view from this overlook is down the Yadkin Valley from the headwaters of the Yadkin River. The ridge from Jerry Mountain to Warrior Mountain is on the south side of the Yadkin River. To the south beginning at Johnnys Knob, you have a divide and the John's River flows to the west. Grassy Knob, Bee Mountain & Round Mountain are on the south side of John's River. I-40 runs just this side of the ridge running from Hildebran Mountain to Rector Knob. The mountains from Doublehead Mountain to Propst Mountain are in the region of South Mountains State Park.
