If you park at the northern end on hwy 42 and follow the AT, it is 7.5 miles round trip. You cross beautiful Laurel creek a couple of times, the AT shelter, then begin a fairly good 1.5 mile up. I think these people that say the view is only so so and obstructed by trees, haven't actually made it to the overview. Once you get to the campsite, continue on a small trail to your right to reach the outcropping. It requires you to hop across some crevices and the view is totally unobstructed.
