This Epic Mountain In Kentucky Will Drop Your Jaw

We have all likely played, “king of the mountain” in our youth, but those that take a climb up the renowned Black Mountain are in for a real treat. There is so much to see and experience along the way to this special part of our state. This ancient mountain is 4145’ above mean sea level, which is the highest point in Kentucky. In ways, this makes it the most epic mountain in the Bluegrass State, as well as the highest. Why?

The beautifully epic Black Mountain range in Kentucky is truly a site to behold. There has been some irreparable damage done over the decades with strip and coal mining, but the mountain still maintains its majestic beauty. It is hard to take that from a mountain, and this one happens to be a strong part of our heritage. There is a lot of history across these woods and rocky bluffs. What is your favorite spot to visit in the Kentucky Mountains?

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
