Interesting little state park in KY and the mountain that tops it out is quite interesting with numerous caves, overhands, natural bridges, and steep slabs to explore and climb on. The park is non contiguous and there may be a slightly higher peak on the non contiguous tracts but hard to confirm and not trails to it. These two knobs on the main tract are filled with hiking trails, roads, and power easement paths, however are on the top of the park service maintenance areas and above the slab called Raven Rock. NNHN is jsut east at around 2880 and is just outside the park boundary so is NOT the SP HP.
That un-named feature (NNHN)is adjacent to SR 1679 (south of it).The ridge connection has several saddles just below elevation 2,600 so call the COL at 2590.
