Having two points of access, this trail may be entered either from the Rock Hotel trailhead along the main park road or from the trail hub near the Chained Rock Parking Lot. The path closely traces a series of ridgeline sandstone bluffs that parallel and offer views of the spine-like crest of Pine Mountain. The soil layers along the central portions of this trail are thin and dry accounting for the open canopy that characterizes this ridgeline trail.
Pine Mountain State Resort Park, a 1,500 acre park in eastern Kentucky, offers plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors. Wasioto Winds Golf Course is an 18 hole championship course, ranked by Golf Digest as the fourth best new affordable public course in the country. If golf isn't your style, there are more than enough ways to feed your need for adventure at Pine Mountain. The park has 15 miles of self guided trails, a variety of area wildlife, and a museum as well as a nature center. Those wanting to enjoy the park for an extended stay may reserve a room at Hendon J. Evans lodge or in one of the 20 cottages on the park.
