Stone Face Rock

Folklore says that the face was carved by Cherokee Indians honoring their chief at the time. The name of the Chief is unknown. Others believe that the face has evolved over time by wind and rain. Nevertheless it’s a great photo opportunity for a visitor looking for something different! Stone Face Rock is located just outside of Pennington Gap and can be seen from 421 North.
