This is an easy hike through wooded terrain with views of Summersville Lake along the way. The pay off is at the end of the trail when you've reached Long Point. The view of the lake is great and would be a perfect lunch spot. Be careful around the cliff, there are several crevices that a person can fall through.

This is a nice hike, not to difficult with a great view at the end which is a great place to sit for a while and enjoy a drink and maybe have a bite to eat. I would do this trail again.

Great short hike with spectacular view of the New River Gorge Bridge at the end. There is one slightly steep rocky section. View at the end is on an unprotected cliff. Hang on to your young hikers.

Easy hike, well marked trail. Great views once you get to the end. One thing to note, you will be on top of very high cliffs once you reach the end of the trail. I had the idea of swimming the lake once I reached the lookout but realized it would be impossible to get down/back up without serious risk of injury or death.

Nice and easy hike rewarded by a spectacular cliff top view of the lake at the end.

Great trail. There were very few people on the trail and I felt free to unleash my hounds.

The trail is an old road and isn't too exciting, but once you get to the overlook of the lake, the view makes it worth every step. Careful with kids and dogs, there is nothing to separate you and a very long fall into the water. The map makes it look like you have to park at the boat ramp area, but you can drive on the County Rd and get a mile closer. The trail you'll follow is the red one shown on map. (I don't know what the black trails are meant to show).

Good, short out and back. Not much of a challenge until a slight dip at the end to get out to the vista. Beautiful vista. Most of trail was very muddy for us on a somewhat warm December day.

A nice walk through the forest with little elevation gain. There was one section of the forest that was covered in mushrooms when we were there. The view of the lake is great and photo worthy!

Very nice views of Summersville Lake in the last 1.5 miles. Total 3.5 miles out and back with minimal challenge

A real nice easy walk with not much gradient(some). Fairly open woods with a nice view of Summersville Lake at the end. Very litter free. A nice trail for biking but better stop if on bicycle at sign marking-- TRAIL END. This trail evidently is very well taken care of because I did not even see many fallen branchs of any size in the path.
