The One Park In Kentucky That’s In The Running For Most Beautiful In The Nation

Whether you are an avid outdoor enthusiast who has all of Kentucky’s trailheads memorized or you simply enjoy a stroll along a paved path around a lake, everyone can agree that Kentucky is a great place to be outside. And one of the best places to be outside in our state can be found in the southeast corner of Kentucky in Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. This massive park that spans Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia is not only one of the most beautiful parks in the state, but it is also in the running for the most beautiful in the nation.
