In fall of 1985 the Blaney Family donated 213.17 acres to the Monroe County Park District in two transactions, one in 1983, and the other in 1985. The point was developed in 1974 as a picnic/overlook area with a parking area, picnic tables and bulletin board for our visitors. In 1997 The Monroe County Park District transferred ownership of 16 acres to the Monroe County Governing Board of Commissioners for the purpose of non commercial or emergency communication system.
A commanding view of New Martinsville, WV and the Ormet Aluminum Company can be appreciated from this point. A feeling of being air borne is easily experienced as approximately seven miles of the Ohio River unfolds almost 500 feet below the view point’s crest. Hiking trails afford our visitors a unique glimpse of the rugged terrain that exists in the River Valley, as feeder creeks cut their way into the mighty Ohio.
