Pine Mountain State Scenic Trail

Carson Island Road
Elkhorn City, KY 41522


The Pine Mountain State Scenic Trail is a linear state park still under development. Once completed, the long distance trail designed for primitive camping, backpacking and hiking, will span approximately 120 miles from Breaks Inter­state Park to Cumberland Gap National Historic Park and pass through many natural areas such as Bad Branch State Nature Preserve, Kingdom Come State Park and Blanton Forest along the Pine Mountain range. The trail will be a means for showcasing the wild highlands and conserving the natural and cultural heritage of Appalachia for future generations. Current sections include the 28 miles of Birch Knob, 16 miles of the Highland Section and 38 paved miles of the Little Shepherd Trail.
