Bee Rock

Bee Rock

Bee Rock is a trail and overlook that is a long-time cultural fixture for local Monterey, TN residents, and is now privately-owned by the adjacent Bed & Breakfast, The Garden Inn. The B&B owners recognize the site’s value to both visitors and locals, and continue to allow full access to it between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. only, seven days a week. Bee Rock itself is the terminus of a short walking trail, however there are several other overlooks that are easily accessible along the short trail.  Bee Rock is a perfect “quick taste” of the Cumberland Plateau.  

It's a great place for a relaxing picnic, hiking, rappelling, some short but difficult rock climbing, and if nothing else, a quick and tranquil connection with nature. It's probably the best "natural" rest stop along interstate highways in Tennessee.
