Overlook Description

The view from this overlook is sensational. The Seven Mile Ridge seems to stretch forever with slopes and ridges filling the foreground. The impressive Black Mountains loom high above Seven Mile Ridge in the background. Early mountain roads would follow a ridge instead of a river valley that could end abruptly. One of these old sled roads still extends across the Seven Mile Ridge. Some parts of the road are still used by farmers in the area.
