Things to See & Do

When it comes to fun, recreation and scenic locales, Pike County rivals the finest vacation destinations anywhere. The landscape is surrounded by towering mountains with lush foliage and vegetation that provide spectacular views throughout the year.

Each season presents its own breathtaking color show. In the spring, the hillsides are a myriad of colors as the dogwoods and redbuds bloom alongside other flowering trees. During summer, the deep green of the trees provides a background for an expanse of wildflowers from jack-in-the-pulpit to wild roses. For fall, the mountains blaze with colors as the green trees give way to leaves of gold, red, copper brown and russet. Finally, in winter, the dauntless, ever-faithful pine trees thrust swords of green through bare trees that glisten with thick blankets of white snow.

For generations Pike County and Eastern Kentucky have been a region rich in history, endurance, unique expression and colorful life styles. To be a part of the authentic experience of Pike County, come by for an extended visit.
