The Long Point Trail at New River Gorge National River is a moderate 3.2 mile out-and-back hike to one of the best overlook views of the New River Gorge Bridge and New River that West Virginia has to offer.

The overlook, at the end of the trail, is a three-sided cliff that juts out from the mountains and into the valley formed by the New River. Straight ahead is the iconic New River Bridge, the longest steel span bridge in the western hemisphere.

The hike itself is moderate only for the way back. The hike starts out easy. Follow the signs that point toward the Long Point Trail and Long Point Overlook. Once you reach a sign that states "no bikes beyond this point", you know you're getting close. From there, the hike is downhill to the lookout point.

GPS data note: the GPS data provided here was tracked during early September 2017, during the same time that the trail was getting new routes blazed. The GPS data may be slightly off after Sept 2017, but will still get you to the overlook regardless.
