  • Great park to explore. Many trails although they are generally climbing out of a valley or into a valley; many stairs. Beautiful place right in town. There is also about 11 miles of Mountain bike trails on the upper side of the park. They are very well maintained and continually being updated. They are different than the average trail in that they wrap back on themselves frequently it can be frustrating and confusing if your not aware the first time. Please respect the signage after rain or melting snow there may be closed trails.
  • What a beautiful Park we experienced. Just a super clean town and beautiful well-kept hiking trails. Also This town in KY deserves to be noticed with the kindest folks on earth !!
  • This is a place to go when u want to go for a hike. Or get away to clear ur head. It's beautiful part of nature.
  • This is an amazing place to go with family. Pack a picnic load up the kids and enjoy the day in nature. Hiking trails are beautiful and tranquil. Creeks are clean and refreshing. They have bathrooms and picnic tables, along with a covered pavilion. It's truly a beautiful place to got go.
  • Nice place to just hang out and enjoy the nature
