A Beautiful Appalachian Mountain Property With Seasonal Stream In East Central KY


What a tremendous Appalachian Mountain property, with beautiful views! Moving about this property on a clear March evening as the skies broke clear and bright blue. The open forested valleys and ridges were a treat to explore while I roamed taking photos. Located at the end of the gravel road, this secluded tract lies in the Cumberland Plateau and in some of the most beautiful and rugged terrain found anywhere in the eastern U.S. The views from the peaks on this property are breathtaking as it seems you can see miles. This tract is also only 12 short miles from the nearby 1,231 acre Buckhorn Lake State Park which provides opportunities for fishing, boating, swimming and skiing. The State Park offers lodging, cottages, and dining as well. Just to the south less than 5 miles is the Daniel Boone National Forest providing even more room to take your outdoor game up a notch. This remote big-woods landscape is home to everything roaming the wild Appalachian Mountains. All sorts of wildlife including big mature whitetails, eastern toms and the occasional black bear, bobcat and gray fox roam these ridges. This property is also only a few miles from the Elk Zone counties, home to the largest elk herd in the eastern U.S. On this property are couple seasonal mountain streams originating in the upper reaches of the watersheds, descending through the main valley to the southwest providing clean, liquid life throughout. This tract is made up primarily of a natural mix of medium-sized poplar in the valleys, while the hillsides and narrow ridgetops are predominantly young hickory and American beech. Old logging roads lead in almost every direction throughout this challenging terrain help to create good hiking trails, as well as potential horseback riding or ATV/UTV riding. There is a small spot in the valley near the center of the property that would be suitable for a private “off-the-grid” small cabin, as well as a couple upper benches near the north and southeast boundaries. This property would be perfect for an ultra-private weekend get-away for family and friends to hunt, hike, camp, or explore and make memories while taking in all that nature has to offer.  If this type of adventure sounds like what you need in your life, give me a call and let’s see if this property is what you have been searching for.
