Hike To This Sandy Cave In Kentucky For An Out-Of-This-World Experience
We already know that Kentucky has incredible hiking trails that rival the best in the world. We have it all here in the Bluegrass State, and there are bound to be natural wonders you have yet to discover. Located in the southeastern region of Kentucky and stretching into Tennessee and Virginia, Cumberland Gap National Historical Park is definitely one of the premier hiking destinations in the United States – if not the entire world.
There are so many natural features throughout the park that will take your breath away, and one of them happens to be along a trail that stretches into Kentucky. Sand Cave is tucked away on the Ewing Trail, which begins in Virginia, but once you cross the state line, the hike to this sandy cave in Kentucky is an out-of-this-world experience.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
