Beautiful view from the main road 160 crossing over into Virginia but no view at the actual Highpoint. I hiked the main road from the town of Lynch, Ky up to the service road so that I felt like I had hiked the mountain and to my home state of Kentucky’s Highpoint. Easy, service road is wide, well maintained. Beware of bears.

Very easy trail. More of a service road. Worth going to just to be on the highest point in KY. Beautiful scenery, especially to the south.
