There’s An Emerald Springs Hiding In Kentucky That’s Too Beautiful For Words
One of the best, yet under-appreciated, features of Kentucky is its diverse variety of landscapes, wildlife, and natural wonders. In a state that’s widely known for its horses and bourbon, we also have an incredible amount to offer anyone who has an appreciation for nature. Perhaps our biggest bragging right is Mammoth Cave, which is the longest cave system in the world, but the land around it is also packed full of biodiversity and incredible natural beauty.
In fact, not far from the cave system in the town of Munfordville along the Green River, you’ll find Johnson Springs. This emerald green spring is hiding near a park in Kentucky and it’s not only too beautiful for words; it has quite a story.
Johnson Springs is a magical place in Kentucky that’s worth the effort of the hike to reach it – and is also worth the effort to preserve this hidden gem in our naturally beautiful state.
