How can you experience this view in person? Buzzard Rock isn’t marked officially on a map, but it’s still highly visited. The trail leading to it is an old Jeep trail along the ridge too and is worn down by foot traffic by hikers exploring the Big South Fork and the Daniel Boone National Forest. Buzzard Rock is at the top of the list of majestic overlooks of the Big South Fork region!
To explore Buzzard Rock, take U.S. Hwy 27 through Whitley City, then take a left onto Wiborg Loop Road. Take another left onto Tom Roberts Road, then veer left onto Big Creek Road. Take the gravel road into the forest several miles until you see and unidentified gravel parking lot on your right!
