Moderate hike with no summit view at the top. The Vista / overlook is the rock face as the other reviewer (mj) said at 42.9134, -73.1555. This is more than a mile before you get to the summit and is right at the point where you first see the white rocks all over the place. The trail at the summit connects to two other trials that keep going. We followed the ridge trial about .2 miles and didn't find any other views. The trail is rerouted slightly at the beginning (which is well marked) so we ended up doing almost exactly 4 miles to the summit with elevation gain of just below 2000ft for the out and back. This should be changed on the trail info. 3 or maybe 4 steeper parts during the hike but relatively tame. A few stream crossings the pooch was able to drink from.
