It was a cloudy mild day in Kentucky, so we took the girls for a day trip to The Cumberland Gap National Historical Park on the borders of Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee. We love day trips they are a great way of spending a bonding day of family time!!
We drove to The Pinnacle Overlook where you can see 3 States.
Skyland Road and the Pinnacle Overlook
Leaving the visitor center, park visitors can drive the winding, four-mile-long Skyland Road up the mountain to the Pinnacle Overlook (elevation 2,440 feet) for a spectacular view into Kentucky, Virginia, and Tennessee.
Skyland Road is periodically closed during the winter due to inclement weather.
The road is closed to vehicles 20 feet or longer in length. When park staff is available, shuttles to the Overlook can be arranged; cost is $5.00 per person.
Inquiries can be made at the park visitor center or by calling (606)248-2817. (Source : https://www.nps.gov/cuga/planyourvisit/gettingaround.htm )
