This overlook provides one of the best views the Parkway has to offer. To the left is the majestic Grandfather Mountain. The outlines of Linville Mountain, Hawksbill and Table Rock are visible in the distance. Straight ahead from the overlook is Mackey Mountain and Chestnut Wood Mountain. Farmers in the area would place salt in logs for their herds of cattle. The logs usually would be near a water source or where the animals would gather.
