Lindy Point Overlook – 1/4 mile walk to an observation deck. Better photographic vantages can be had by doing some rock hopping, but it can be dangerous, so be careful.

Access this area by turning to your right when leaving the parking lot at the Blackwater Falls Lodge.  Follow till the road turns to gravel.  You will come to a parking area that has room for about six cars. Park where the road turns to dirt.  This is also be beginning of the Canaan loop road.  I would not venture down this road without a 4WD and high clearance vehicle.  There are parts where you will wonder what the heck you were thinking if you drive your car down here.  This road comes out on SR 32 after about 19 miles with an easy return to the lodge or Davis.

Lindy Point Overlook is a short 1/4 mile trail with a viewing platform.  You will be able to see up and down the Blackwater Canyon and it's a good place for sunrise and sunset shots. Follow the trail from the parking area about 1/4 mile.  The trail is fairly level and very easy and you will come to the observation deck which overlooks the gorge.
