Sunset Point is an overlook located in Buffalo Mountain State Park. The trail is a short hike up along the White Rock loop trail then a short walk off the trail to get to the overlook. There is a clearing with a few benches that has wide open views to the west. The short hike up to the point should take no more than 10-15 minutes. This is the best place to watch the sunset in Johnson City.

Sunset Point Reviews

The walk to get to Sunset Point is super short and perfect to walk back down once it’s dark. The hike up is a little steep and there are exposed roots and rocks along the dirt trail so bring some light for the walk back down. The clearing at the top provides a perfect view in just the right direction to watch the sun sink over the horizon.
