Pulpit Rock Overlook offers a view of the river as it curves round a 90 degree bend. A 134 yard trail leads to the viewing area, where the best aspect is upstream, a straight section of the canyon bordered to the south by smooth slopes covered by a mix of scree and vegetation, in contrast to the opposite side of the valley which is much rockier and more rugged.
