LETTER: Iconic County lookout obscured by vegetation

Dear Editor,

Re: Hayward Long Reach Lookout Point – County rd. 35

Many years ago when County Road 35 was popularly known as Green Point Road, the residents of Prince Edward County were so proud to have an attractive plaque posted which detailed the history of Long Reach and the days of the speed boat races.

Next to the plaque is a large professionally made sign announcing the “Hayward Long Reach Lookout”.

However, you cannot look out anymore because of the overgrown vegetation. In fact, you wouldn’t even know that there is a Long Reach there, because you can’t see anything. It would be so great if the County could have overgrown vegetation cut back to restore this significant, historic lookout.
