Elk View Overlook

Elk View Overlook
Breathitt County

The driveway from the main road to the overlook

Much of the view from the overlook is of reclaimed land that was strip mined by Breathitt County coal miners.

From the parking lot, visitors can access the overlook.

Informational signs along the path of the overlook explain the history and mission of Elk View.

Breathtaking Views







Elk have been reintroduced to the area, but deer and wild horses are also abundant here.

Numerous wild horses were near the overlook when I visited.
