The overlook feature granite benches, nine parking spaces, two stone walls, and a viewing area from which visitors can enjoy excellent views of the adjacent Penobscot Narrows Bridge, the Penobscot River and Verona Island. Also located at the overlook are three historic plaques connected to the Waldo-Hancock Bridge, which was removed earlier this year.
