There’s not much left of the view at Plott Balsam Overlook due to three large trees, two of which is dead. All that remains are the tops of a few mountains in the Plott Balsam Range. If you just started out on the Blue Ridge Parkway at the southern entrance, get used to it because you won’t get to a worthwhile overlook until you reach Waterrock Knob Overlook at Mile Post 451.
