Rice Mountain is the large mountain that dominates the vista at the Rice Mountain View stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are multiple tall trees just feet away from sidewalk that get in the way, but the view is not that interesting to begin with. What you see in the above photo is pretty much what you get.

There is a picnic table with a nice view of Rice Mountain if you wanted to grab a bite to eat.
