My wife and I went here with seven high school students from our church youth group. I was apprehensive about even going (I'm over 60 and was concerned about crashing into trees...). But this went away once we went through their 'ground school' and safety training. I had a great time and felt like perfectly at ease the whole time. Our guides Ben and Dwayne (brothers!) were fantastic. The first couple of zips were easy and good confidence builders. Plenty of excitement and great scenery.!

Pine Mountain State Resort Park

This park provides trails and steep, mountainous ridges for the avid hunter of squirrel and grouse.

Reviewed By Patty L G - Berea, Kentucky

I made a driving tour through SE Kentucky yesterday. Pine Mountain State Park was a find. Laurel Cove Amphitheater was Ideal. I will be watching for an opportunity to attend an event there. The restrooms and other facilities onsite were clean and working and had a lovely rustic look. Plenty of picnic locations with tables and grills. I had a delicious salad and a baked fried apple pie at the lodge at a table with a view of the tree filled valley. The staff was very obliging. There is a pool and mini golf and plenty of hiking trails. Fun trip.

Chained Rock

Reviewed By JuliaHughes

Very nice views at chain rock. Great place to take some beautiful pictures. One mile nature hike to chain rock. Then the climb/walk up the rock. Well worth it if you are a nature lover. A couple of benches set up along the path through the woods. Some great photo opportunities along the pathway also. Not for anyone who has a fear of heights. Myself, my husband and our two kids ages 12 & 14 really enjoy taking a little family outing up to look off of chain rock. Huge chain, huge rock, small town below it. Gorgeous mountain setting. Over the years some have spray painted parts underneath. Ignorant to the beauty they're defacing. Sad. Over all a beautiful place.

Wasioto Winds Golf Course

Public links-style golf course designed by Michael Hurdzan is affordable but upscale.

Reviewed By KentuckyGlobetrotter - Kentucky

One of the best public golf courses in the State of Kentucky. Water everywhere with views that are outstanding. Tough course well maintained and challenging to the best of golfers. Top notch at inexpensive prices.

This historical marker is located along US-25E about a mile south of Pineville, KY. It describes how the Cumberland River was named.

Reviewed By Osvaldo F

Even though this marker is easily accessible, the area surrounding it included an abandoned building. This was unappealing and I am sure many fail to notice this marker. However, I was interested in learning how the "narrows" became a significant gateway for travelers on the well known Wilderness Road.
