Tri-State Pinnacle Overlook

I promise this is the last recap of my trip to Tennessee. Without further ado…

Before leaving the Cumberland Gap area, we wanted to make sure we drove up to the Pinnacle Overlook. This overlook provided a view of Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. We were the only visitor’s around as we took in nature’s beauty.


Had we had more time it would have been incredibly cool to hike from the Cumberland Gap to the Pinnacle. Alas, we had to drive to the overlook and walk on the short trail to the site. Along the short walk to the overlook, we passed into Virginia from Kentucky!

The view was stunning. If I recall correctly, Tennessee is on the left and Kentucky is on the right (remember we are standing in Virginia).


Then we posed with the beauty (isn’t the fog making things cool?) before scampering back to the car. With the high elevation it was so cold at the overlook!

What overlooks have you enjoyed?

Have you ever been in two states or countries at the same time? Healthy Heddleston fun fact: I’ve had one foot in England + one foot in Scotland before :)

    Can’t wait to go back home to Virginia again soon :)

    I’ve put one foot in the Vatican and left one foot in Italy, although it’s hard to tell where one starts and the other ends!

    I think you may have just convinced me I need to visit Tennessee asap!

    I’m looking forward to visiting the tri-state landmark. My friend is diabetic so I’m hoping it is an easy hike. I’m taking a tour of Kentucky in August.
