KINGDOM COME STATE PARK ACTIVITIES
The park offers birding opportunities with over 100 species spotted, including warblers and woodpeckers. Birdwatching trails are available.
The 14 hiking trails that crisscross nearly 5 miles of rugged mountain terrain provide the opportunity to explore the park¿s giant rock formations and scenic overlooks. All of the trails are fairly short in length (1/8-7/8 mile) but many trail routes may be combined for hikes of varying lengths and difficulty. A trail guide publication is available at the park. Trails are open year-round.
Little Shepherd Trail:
This narrow gravel and blacktop road extends 38 miles along the crest of Pine Mountain from Whitesburg to Harlan. The road traverses the park near the summit of Pine Mountain. This is an excellent scenic route for mountain bikes, cars (remember the gravel), and light trucks.
The park offers a variety of boating options for visitors. There is a 3.5-acre mountain lake where guests can rent pedal boats, rowboats and canoes to enjoy the water during warmer months. However, it's important to note that private boats are not allowed on this lake due to its small size and depth restrictions.
Enjoy fishing in a serene mountain setting with options for both bank and boat angling. Species include bass, catfish, crappie, bluegill and trout. The park's lake is regularly stocked to ensure plentiful catches.
