Miller’s Point is named for Bob and Adrienne Miller, who donated this property as part of a 13-acre tract in the immediate area. Parking is marked by a sign on the left on Middle Farm Road 0.3 miles in from the main road.
This short trail passes through an impressive oak grove that often contains interesting varieties of mushrooms. Along the way there are short side trails to the banks of Middle Farms Pond. The trail narrows as you approach the point, where a number of Black Gum trees fringe the pond, providing shade. Here the vegetation opens to views of the edge of Middle Farms Pond, where it transitions to a shrub swamp. Turtles are often present among the water lilies. This is a very peaceful and serene spot to observe wildlife.
