You’ll Fall In Love With The Natural Beauty Of The Highest Point In Kentucky

Kentucky is a beautiful state where you can experience nearly every type of landscape, from underground caverns to towering mountains. Many don’t think of Kentucky as a mountain state, but we do, in fact, have several peaks that offer incredible views and plenty of outdoor adventure. Of course, each state in our country has a tallest point, and Kentucky is no exception. The Bluegrass State’s highest point can be found in the town of Lynch, on Black Mountain. This mountain has seen a bit of everything over the years, but we’re pretty sure that after seeing these photos, you’ll fall in love with the natural beauty of the highest point in Kentucky.

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
