Description

Scuttle Hole Overlook Trail is a fairly easy hike which leads to three overlooks that provide exceptional views of Lake Cumberland and the mouth of the Rockcastle River. Much of the trail follows the upper edge of a cliffline with cliffs dropping over 100 feet. A quarter mile spur trail (Scuttle Hole Trail #404A) descends through a large crevice, (the "Scuttle Hole") to connect this trail with the Dutch Branch Trail and Rockcastle Campground. There are 127 steps on this short section of trail.
