“While the first bit is difficult, the view from Point Mountain and the hike through forest and field are worth it!”

From the kiosk near the entrance to the parking area, take the Blue Trail
along a rocky path for a very short distance. Soon, the trail splits, and you'll want to follow the orange blaze. Quickly, the trail changes from gentle grades to a steep and rocky incline.
After sweating your way to the summit, enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding hills, valleys, and verdant farmlands. Point Mountain is one of the highest elevations in the county, at 935 feet above sea level. When you've gotten your fill of the view, continue along the forested ridge path to gently descend and cross a stream drainage.
Shortly after the drainage, the Orange Trail
skirts gorgeous farmland (providing access to the Orange Trail - North
trail along the fields) before reaching a junction with the Blue Trail
at an information post. Head right at the post to turn north and follow the trail to its end in a nondescript parking lot.
