The overlook is a simple roadside pullout on the north side of the road, with a retaining wall about 70 feet (21 m) long. The wall was built out of quarried stone and mortar in 1935 by a crew of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). It is one of only two CCC-built overlooks in the national forest.The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
