The Breaks ParkBreaks Interstate Park “Grand Canyon of the South”

The 250 million year old canyon encompasses 4,500 acres of lush, green, woodlands and mountain scenery including more than 13 miles of hiking trails. The name “Breaks” is derived from the break in Pine Mountain, created by the rushing waters of the Russell Fork of the Big Sandy River, as it carved a 1,000 foot gorge making its way to the Ohio River. The park sports a campground, lodge, restaurant, gift shop, museum, guided tours, and grist-mill as well as many outdoor adventures.
