ELK VIEW SCENIC BYWAY

The proposed three-county scenic byway through the counties of Breathitt, Knott & Perry Counties in southeastern Kentucky begins at the site of the Breathitt County Visitor Center near Quicksand at the corner of Highways 1098 and 15. It then travels east on Highway 1098 past the South Fork Elk View Station continuing eastward into Knott County past Elk View Drive where a second elk view station is located.

Travel southeast to Highway 80 and then west on Highway 80 past the site of Saddle Up Elk Tours where one can ride horses to see elk and past he proposed site for an Elk & Land Reclamation Interpretive Center on the Perry/Knott County line. Continue east on Highway 80 then take Highway 15 north back into Breathitt County and end up back at the Breathitt County Visitor Center thus completing a loop.
