The Breaks

We are excited to be hosting Head for the Hills 2017 at a new location this year—the the Breaks Interstate Park!

Known as “the Grand Canyon of the South”, the Breaks spans areas of Kentucky and Virginia and features a 5 mile long gorge that is 1650 feet deep.

There will be no shortage of recreation options during your down-time —the park offers miles of trails for hikers and bikers of all levels, canoes and paddle boats, fishing, guided horse-back tours, and even white-water rafting.

If you get the urge to brush up on some local culture and history, nearby Pike County, Kentucky and Dickenson and Buchanan Counties in Virginia each feature several museums and local attractions.

GMEC will be providing on-site accommodations for our guests in either the main lodge or cabins, complete with resplendent views  of the park and fall foliage. As always, family is also welcome!

Don’t forget to register now to reserve your spot!
