Hike Through A Canopy Of Trees On This Little Known Trail In Kentucky
You could spend a lifetime discovering all of the hidden trails throughout Kentucky and there would still be many left to explore. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’ve likely heard of many of Kentucky’s incredible State Parks, National Forests, and Nature Preserves that are scattered across the state. Perhaps you’ve even heard of this lesser known Preserve near Barren River Lake. Brigadoon State Nature Preserve is 184 acres of thick forest, foliage, and wildflowers and it has the most beautiful trail that allows you to walk right through a magical canopy of trees.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
