the overlook is a step up from the Bluffs trail in difficulty mostly because of a few rocky sections. You can roll it in either direction, but clockwise gives you a bit more downhill on the rocks, but there is still some punchy and rocky climbs in either direction. It is named for its view of the river and the valley. It is not that high up the mountain side, and the views are better up top, but there is nice view of the baseball fields and some interesting rock formations that crop out of the hillside.
