Mile markers for LHHT (Laurel Highland Hiking Trail) are cement spires approx. 2 feet tall.  None-the-less, easy to miss.

Barely seen is Blue Knob off in the distance, on the far left partially blocked by foliage.  As you run this section you'll have a few occasions to see out across the valley, but no true vistas are available.
