Quick Facts

Historical/Interpretive Information/Exhibits, Scenic View/Photo Spot

Looking west-northwest from an elevation of 3,235 ft (986 m), at The Point Overlook you can view the Blue Ridge Mountains, and on a clear day, out to the Shenandoah Valley. Straight ahead lies Powell Mountain. Further back to the left is Grindstone Mountain. To the left of Grindstone Mountain is Green Mountain. The town of Elkton in the Shenandoah Valley is to the left of Green Mountain, but may or may not be visible depending on the air quality in the valley below. There is a short but slightly steep trail that leads out to a viewpoint, from which the overlook got its name.
