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.

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.
