The quintessential New River Gorge view from Long Point and beautiful sunset spot. This trail traverses field and forest on the way to a rock outcrop (Long Point) with panoramic views of the gorge and New River Gorge Bridge. The last 0.2 miles to the overlook is for hiking only. Most of this trail lazily descends through the forest, but it does include one steep section just before you arrive at the point. *Mountain bikes are permitted on all but the last 0.2 miles. Cyclists should note that this trail is frequented by groups of friends and families with small children walking side-by-side along this trail. Please be aware of other trail users, ride slowly and cautiously, control your speed and communicate clearly and politely to pass.


Last 0.2 miles are closed to bikes. This trail is very popular among hikers and families.
