O & W Overlook Professional Review and Guide
"The key feature to this ride, the overlook, gives a wide view of the unique topography of the region. The rolling hills of the plateau have been ground slowly away where tow main local bodies of water, the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River and North White Oak Creek, join and rush north through sandstone-capped gorges. Facing north, the canyon coming in on the left was make by the North White Oak. Below, a trestle spans the mighty Big South Fork, remnant of the days when the tracks of the Oneida & Western rattled as boxcars hauled out timber and coal. Take care at the overlook; there are no rails around the canyon lip."
