The Pinnacle Overlook Loop Trail at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park is a short 0.4 mile loop hike that brings you above the Pinnacle Overlook Trail for a short nature walk with small views, between the trees, of the surrounding Cumberland Gap valley.

This trail is nothing special during the summer when you cannot get a great views between the trees of the valley, but in the fall and early spring the views from the lookout points are likely a lot better here.

By hiking this trail, you cross from Kentucky, into Virginia, and then back into Kentucky after 0.4 miles.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
