Very interesting visit but a bit disappointed with the Daniel Boone exhibition. The view form the Pinnacle is outstanding. We did not hike but would assume you would have a great time hiking the trails

This is a great park! Right on the main road, free, offers hiking, camping, pic nick areas, area history, info about Daniel Boone and an amazing view from the top of the mountain. There is wildlife galore and packed with history.

Our tour guide was amazing! One of the best ever! Went to the visitor center and paid for a 4 hour tour of the Hensley Settlement Farm, $10 and they take u there in a van!! Well worth the money for sure!

The marker is at the top of a hill at the end of a trail-there’s a gazebo and a small plaque for each state along with a marker on the ground.

Your first stop should be the visitors center. The park consists of approximately 24,000 acres, 85 miles of trails, camping, and lots to do and see! The rangers there can give you tips on finding the different trailheads... More
