A family-friendly trail and picnicking area near the Ledges.

Description

Near the Ritchie Ledges, the Forest Point Trail is an easy half-mile and should take up to 30 minutes to trek. This space has a grill, limited electrical access and can be reserved for groups. Hikers and trail runners alike will love the scenic views and the opportunity to combine the trails for a longer route.

This is a beautiful trail, filled with deciduous greenery as well as hemlock, oak, wildflowers, switchgrass, and other foliage. What makes it great is versatility: the grounds are quite nice and make a great added value for any of the surrounding trails or sights you can take in. This is a real family-friendly trail that caters to kids and beginners.

Expert runners have plenty around this trail to take in that offers heft and cardio. This is also a great trail if you like learning from your field guide, because there’s plenty of undisturbed prairie vegetation to look up here. People who want to build in more family time, picnicking, or frisbee into a day-long outing in the CVNP will love it. Outdoorsy families looking for a rental location for a family reunion spot are going to love it, too.
