Bee Rock Overlook

Located on the Cumberland Plateau in Monterey, Tennessee, Bee Rock Overlook offers easy access from I-40 and a short hike to enjoy expansive views.

In between heavy rainfall as part of the weather system associated with tropical storm “Fred”, I was able to enjoy my first visit to this scenic overlook, albeit quite cloudy.

A large caprock of sandstone features several dated carvings with peoples initials. Parking is limited. No restrooms. Also, there are a few signs but no fences, so stay away from the edge (approx. 130-feet high).

Prints Available

If you’d like to accent a wall in your home or office with a print featuring my photography, you can visit my gallery to select an appropriate print. Many options available. Thanks!

Lastly, don’t be confused by the point of entry from the parking area. Though the drive is chained, it’s a public trail. So, just follow the well-worn path around the gate.

      Thank you, my friend 🙂 Yes, there are many carvings in the caprock. I didn’t look closely but did see a few dated from 1990-91, slowing but surely weathering away.
