With three lakes and the plateau, the Upper Cumberland has a ton of stunning lookout points perched on high, rolling ridgetops.

One of those beautiful places – the scenic Bee Rock Overlook! This popular local spot is tucked away in the small town of Monterey, Tennessee and right off of I-40.

This area entails a wide area with multi-layered smooth ledges making it a great place to sit, hang out, read/write, take photos, drink coffee, etc.

Scenic Bee Rock Overlook

Located by The Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast at Bee Rock, you can even make a weekend trip out of it! This venue is perched on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau – literally!

Parking is available; however, the signage is limited, and the parking area will be at the end of the dead end road. The path is located behind the old blue building you will park in front of.

The path leading to the bluff is cleared and easily navigated. Walk the semi-straight and well-worn 0.6 mile path to the overlook and be greeted by the bluff’s edge and miles and miles of gorgeous Tennessee hills and valleys. Be sure to watch your step and grab the little ones because there are no ropes or rails.

Any season is a great time to go especially in the fall! With all the beautiful colors in autumn, you’ll be sure to capture a postcard-worthy image of this panoramic view.
