Pine Mountain is a rugged, nearly roadless mountain guarded by jutting sandstone cliffs, tangled rhododendron thickets, and large prehistoric landslides laden with car-sized boulders. A long weekend will allow you to hike about 18 miles of the Pine Mountain Scenic Trail. This backpack is accessible to most hiking abilities, but come prepared for a good challenge. If you want to enjoy this majestic gem of Eastern KY and get off the beaten path, then this adventure is perfect for you.
