Ok...found some stuff. You guys may already have these resources, but I might as well list them too.
The best views in Roaring Plains are along the southern ridge. However, the official trail does not take you all the way to the ridge, so the use of some unofficial trails is necessary. The link below is for a day hike in the area that uses the unofficial trail. Depending on recent use, finding this trail may be much easier than described. More and more people are starting to use it.
My other suggestion is to take Rocky Point Trail to Lion's Head overlook. It's described in this hike here.
Sorry for the serious info dump...I know this can all be confusing. The mid-atlantic hikes website is very helpful if you have a GPS. You can download his GPS files of every hike, so the off-trail travel would be pretty easy to navigate. Should be a good time :)
