  • The paths do seem perpetually muddy after a good rain, bear this in mind when visiting. The trails offer different difficulty levels but overall is moderate in skill level required. There is a good deal of educational information at the entrance and in the Nature Center. Closes in mid-afternoon.
  • Always love visiting here. Alone to jog the trails or hike with my kids. Just far out enough to enjoy a good natural terrain but not a huge commute from everything Lexington has to offer
  • The trails are a good mixture of covered and uncovered, hilly and flat, and diverse. Put aside 3 hours to get a good hike in.
  • Awesome place to go hiking. There are many trains that aren't too difficult. They also have a very nice visitor center with fossils and stuffed animals that are from the area. You can also book tours for scouts.
  • Place has everything: nature center, historic places, scenic overlooks. Good mix of trails. Convenient location right on the Kentucky river, around the corner from I-75
