The Hidden Rock In Kentucky That’s Now A Massive Piece Of Art
There are many natural wonders in the beautiful state of Kentucky. Exploring them and seeking out hidden spots is a favorite pastime for many adventurers. There are several scenic and interesting places to visit that are readily accessible, and then others that remain somewhat of a mythical destination.
Located in Rockcastle County is such a place that some have stumbled upon over the years. It’s known as many things – Flat Rock, The Rock, Graffiti Rock – and since it’s technically on private property, it’s not often we get a good look at it. But the video and still shots below, captured by Ben Childers Photography, will give you a bird’s eye view of this hidden rock in Kentucky that’s now a massive piece of art.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

The Rock will likely (and hopefully) remain somewhat hidden in Kentucky as a natural wonder and epic lookout. While visiting it and leaving one’s marks on it remain controversial, there’s no disagreement that it is one of many stunning places in Kentucky.
