Here, learning once again to breathe deep in the sweet air of the Appalachians, we believe you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for - even when you hadn’t imagined it yet. There are plenty of options if you want to get outdoors: Nature lovers will enjoy a hike on a scenic trail — most within the park are short in length and easy in difficulty.

The park also includes a campground with tent sites as well as electric and water hookups for RV campers.

180 million years ago, during the age of dinosaurs, in an area now lying across Kentucky and Virginia, a vast inland sea receded, leaving in its wake a veritable cradle of botany. Meanwhile the river that is now Russell Fork got about the work of carving out an immense, spectacular gorge, renowned as the largest east of the Mississippi.

In the wilderness surrounding Breaks Interstate Park, fractal ferns, galax, colts foot, tea berries and a profusion of fungi and moss species dot an undergrowth of rich greens with their bright yellows, oranges and pinks. Hike one of the park’s trails to get a view of these magnificent colors.
