Short but Sweet: Bee Rock Overlook

A hidden gem viewpoint in Monterey, Tennessee which only requires a quarter-mile hike in.

The Property

Bee Rock is located on private property owned by a bed and breakfast, The Garden Inn. The inn is located directly on the edge of the plateau while the overlook is a trail to the side that goes to the point of the plateau and offers panoramic views. Check out the website to the inn below, the aerial photos are astonishing!

The parking is to the right of the road that would take you to the inn and will have the sign shown below. It is important to note that the property restricts access between 9 am and 5 pm daily. The pathway is the dirt road that is to the right of the A-frame storage building. This dirt road continues until it turns into a trail right before the overlook which is made up of massive rock slabs with multiple levels and viewpoints. Also, the hike has minimal elevation because you have already arrived at the top of the plateau when you park.

Like the hike, I'll keep this short and sweet. Additional information can be found at the AllTrails link below and the inn's website below.
