Very easy "hike" with great views of Blackwater Canyon valley.

Easy, short trail with breathtaking views at the point. Would be a fantastic hike in the fall once the leaves reach their peak colors. Definitely a great hike for a beginner but views that anyone will enjoy.

I like this view even better than Blackwater Falls! Easy, wide flint rock trail with some rocks/roots, but after a rain there would be areas of the trail that are standing water. The view is worth it!

Enter Blackwater Falls State Park and drive eastward along the north rim, past the lodge, and continue on a narrow paved road until you see a sign for 4x4 traffic only. There is a small, four car, parking area and a small sign for Lindy Point Overlook. The trail from the road to the overlook is about 12 minutes along a heavily-travelled dirt path. The overlook is stone surrounded by a heavy wooden fence and offers a panoramic view of the gorge. Second only to the waterfall at the western end of the gorge, Lindy Point is the best view.

Sloppy trail this time of year, but the view is spectacular!
