We routinely drive through just to bear hunt, which means look for bear! However there are great overlooks and picnic tables if so inclined. I live near here so easier to eat at the house and drive for a bear hunt!

You can enjoy great views of Lovers Leap from an outlook area ( it is a short but steep hike up to the platform). You can have picnics and stretch your legs after driving the Blue Ridge Parkway.
