Need to Know
It is easy to miss the trail and wind up on the Ridge Top Trail. Signage is not good on this trail.
Indian Point Trail is a 1.9-mile loop trail that starts on the ridge and progresses out to a beautiful bluff face overlooking the valley.
From there, it turns left and descends below the bluff offering some of the best views of the bluff face with tons of opportunities for rock scrambling and exploring. The trail continues along the forest floor before ascending a slight rise. Be careful to look out for a deceptive trail turning left that is not part of this trail.
The loop trail continues straight along a less-beaten trail and stays below the bluff. The forest floor opens up as the trail moves away from the bluff and is a perfect place for viewing wildflowers in the spring.
The trail closes the loop at the pond near the parking lot. Heading clockwise, be on the lookout for a sharp descent and old campsite at the end of the lake. This is the loop trail.
