Immediately below this overlook, you have the headwaters of the South Fork of Mills River. The South Fork of Mills River flows out of the valley between Queen Creek Mountain & Forge Mountain to join the Mills River and then the French Broad River. In the distance to the southeast & south, you can see mountains in South Carolina. I-26 passes between Rich Mountain and Stoney Mountain to the east below Asheville and again between Miller Mountain & Round Mountain further south. US 276 runs between Buckwheat Knob & Looking Glass Rock.
