Not a bad hike. It has a lot of rocky areas so be prepared to slow your pace in some areas.

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.

Nice stroll through the woods. The park could really use better markings for trails. Personally, more maps would have helped me. We stayed with the markers as best possible, but ended up walking back on the road.

Short trail but the views are fabulous! It's an easy hike that any skill level & most abilities can do. Beautiful year round. Gives an excellent view of the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi known as "the Grand Canyon of the south".

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.

Great short trail. Some good places for a little climbing. We did this, the Prospector's Trail, Overlook Trails, and the Laurel Branch Trail in one day easily.

There are lots of great views to see throughout the trails. Plenty of climbing, too.

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.
