Description 

The See Rocks are impossible to ignore if you drive up the South Fork valley. There are three of them lined up in a north/south aspect. From the summits of the rocks you can get a spectacular view of the surround Cumberland Plateau. Access is tricky, but can be had with permission. The rocks themselves are on USFS property, but surrounded completely by private land.


Getting There 

Drive along route 1639 (South Fork Road) until the road forks. The See Rocks are situated dead ahead.

Access can be had from the valley (tricky at best). Best to go with a local.

The Keyhole- an arch formed between the Middle Rock and the North Rock. In the winter you can easily see this very tall arch from South Fork Road.
