Eagle Point Trail Opens: Bluestone

May 20 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am

The Eagle Point Trail officially opens at Bluestone State Park on Saturday, May 20, 2023.

Find Naturalist Jonathan Lipscomb at the overlook located along the park road between the main entrance and the office at 9:00 a.m. for a guided hike. The trailhead begins a short distance away.

This is a new trail and is a very strenuous trail (2 miles for the round trip) ascends to a commanding and historic view of Bluestone Lake and the Bluestone River. Please be sure to bring water and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. Long pants are also a good idea.

Lipscomb will share trail development and the Bluestone area history along the way and at the viewshed area. This trail is not recommended for young children or pets due to its steep terrain and high cliffs. Plan on two hours from the hike starting at 9:00 a.m. until returning by 11:00 a.m. There is no charge to attend.

For additional information call 304-466-2805 or email bluestonesp@wv.gov.
