The One Trail To Visit As Soon As Things Begin To Bloom In Kentucky

When the seasons change and everything transforms from grey and brown to green and vibrant, our beautiful state really comes to life. The rolling hills shine emerald in the sun and our hiking trails are filled with blooming greenery and colorful flowers. There are many great spring hikes in Kentucky, but when things begin to bloom, you’ll want to track down a trail that offers budding flowers and interesting foliage. The Gray’s Arch Trail in Red River Gorge is a wonderful springtime hike in Kentucky, and it’s also a beautiful spot to explore any other time of year.
