Summer’s Point Trail at Cherokee National Forest, Ocoee District Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short, very steep, strenuous hike gives a spectacular result in reaching a point in which you can see far down to the river in two directions, watch the hawks fly by at eye level, and look down at technical climbers who are dangling below you, trying to reach your perch.

This hike provides a king’s view of the wide Hiwassee River valley below you and makes you feel like your head is in the clouds. Though the hike is short, it is not a hike for beginners. The hike follows a streambed for the first part of the trail, after catching the trailhead across the railroad tracks. It then passes along a relatively flat, short stretch on flagstone, and even gives you a pretty little waterfall along the way. It then scrambles over rocks and tree roots in an all-out climb until you reach the first large rock outcropping perch and enjoy the view."
