The views were excellent, trails were fun. Loved the point where you can stand in Tenn, KY, and Virginia. We loved the history of the place as well. The park service staff were excellent. Will come back again.

We spent the better part of a day exploring the visitor center, driving the Pinnacle road and doing some short hikes. We had a great time. The rangers are particularly friendly and helpful.

This is a wonderful park to visit. There is a very nice visitors center where one can watch two very educational films about the region. There are many hiking trails. One can also camp here.
