This is a good trail. Not too difficult for children. It has a lot of large vegetation along the trail which shade out the sun. It is a wide trail and is well traveled.

Enjoyed a weekend getaway with some hiking, sightseeing, and geocaching. We hiked a total of nine trails which we turned into an insane loop throught the park. The hike turned out awesome, even hiked over into Kentucky to capture a geocache and enjoy a quick lunch break at the picnic shelter. We stayed in one of the cottages which it was very peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. Will definitely come here again!

Amazing place and right here in Virginia! I have read about this park many times in the monthly Virginia State Parks email, but seeing it is still more that I expected.

Beautiful park with the usual nice staff. Virginia has the nicest rangers and staff, which always adds value to the experience.

The River Trail is accessed best via Geological after parking at State Line Overlook. Steep rocky trail.

Walked all trails except the river trail. Amazing views and somewhat challenging hill/rock climbs on the prospect trail.

Breaks Interstate Park is a great destination along the Kentucky/Virginia border. The breaks are essentially a 1000 foot deep canyon carved by the Russel Fork and are referred to as the 'Grand Canyon of The South'. The views from the many different lookout points are breathtaking. You also stand a good chance of seeing a train rumbling though a tunnel alongside the river. The trail itself can be challenging, the Prospectors trail is very rocky but offers several rock formations and the trail leading down to the river is very steep, as would be expected. The area also offers a lakeside trail.

This is a breath taking trail. It is my most favorite place in the world. There is great camping and white water rafting as well. The views are unbelievable. They call it the grand canyon of the east.
