When you finally make the steep climb, you are about 500 feet above the Ohio River. These are the bridges into Portsmouth which is upstream from the rock.
This is a small natural arch to the right of the rock.
In the foreground of this picture, you can see a sign that explains how the indians used this vantage point to scout out settlers coming down the river. They would send out raiding parties from the Scioto River. It's quite a view and worth the effort.
