Chained Rock Pineville, KY Chained Rock today is reached by a half-mile wooded trail from a mountaintop parking lot. That sounds easier than it is. By the time you get to the rock -- 200 feet long and 75 feet wide -- it's clear that climbing to the actual chain is not something for the dizzy or the weak.
