The Adventurous Waterfall Trail In Kentucky With Views That Are Worth The Challenge
When Kentuckians decide to hit the trails for a scenic hike in our state, they tend to head toward a state park or Red River Gorge, or another more well known destination. Of course these are all absolutely worth a visit, but there are many places throughout the state that are also worthy of a hiking adventure. Located on scenic Pine Mountain in Harlan County, the Bad Branch State Nature Preserve is home to a waterfall trail in Kentucky that’s filled with one natural wonder after another. Hike to the falls and then continue on to an incredible overlook with views that are definitely worth the challenge.
