A determined effort up a series of switchbacks will take hardy adventurers to an overlook at the top of this prominence called Poff Hill. Once there, hikers are rewarded with a view of the Narrows, the locale where the Cumberland River breaches Pine Mountain and the site where pioneers traveling on the Wilderness Road crossed the river on their way to the Bluegrass. The Narrows was a second necessary gateway through the mountains for the follower's of Boone. Also seen from the observation area are glimpses of the surrounding mountain terrain, and a view of the park's championship golf course, Wasioto Winds. The official trailhead and parking area for this trail are located on Harbell Road, situated between the park's two entrances on the opposite side of Highway 25E. This trail is not completely depicted on the map. Elevation change of 150 feet and marked with fluorescent orange blazes.
