Located in the heart of Kentucky’s Elk Restoration Zone and holding the largest elk herd in the eastern U.S. is this gorgeous Appalachian Mountain property, with stunning views! Wake up to a fall morning listening to those huge, bugling bulls! If you’ve wanted to own property in some of the most beautiful terrain anywhere on earth, you may have just found what you’ve been looking for. Located along the headwaters of the Middle Fork Kentucky River is this very secluded tract of land, beyond the footprints, amidst everything wild these rugged mountains have to offer. The views to the west from the peaks on this property are breathtaking as you can see for miles. This tract is only a 17 scenic mile drive from the town of Harlan and less than 20 miles from Pineville. This property is bounded by Boone Forestlands, LLC a cooperative member of Boone Forestlands WMA, providing even more room to take your outdoor game to the next level. This remote big-woods landscape is home to everything roaming the wild Appalachian Mountains including ELK, big mature whitetails, eastern toms, black bear, beavers, and the occasional bobcat and gray fox. Flowing through this property is a crystal clear, mountain stream originating in the upper reaches of the watershed to the southwest, descending north through the main valley near the west boundary providing clean, liquid life jump-starting the entire mountain ecosystem. This tract is made up primarily of a natural mix of poplar, hemlock, and beech in the valleys, while the hillsides are predominantly oak, maple, and hickory. Trails lead in almost every direction throughout this challenging terrain helping to create good hiking, as well as potential horseback riding or ATV/UTV riding. There are several potential spots throughout the property that would be suitable for a private “off-the-grid” small cabin or if you would rather, the utilities are available along the 1300’ of blacktop road frontage. This property would be perfect for a private weekend getaway for family and friends to hunt, hike, camp, or explore and make memories while taking in all that nature has to offer. Give me a call and let’s see if this is the recreational property you’ve been dreaming of!
