This is a simple overlook, with a rock below that is covered with petroglyphs detailing all sorts of valuable information for prehistoric travelers and hunters in the region. There are telescopes at the overlook for spotting markings on the rocks, since we are no longer allowed to hike down to it.
(FYI, I have a 10X zoom on my camera, so I was able to get some fairly closeup photos.)
