The State Fort In Kentucky Brimming With History That’s Perfect For Hiking
If you’re both a history buff and a hiking or biking enthusiast, then Kentucky has the perfect place for you to visit. Fort Duffield isn’t far from Louisville, and it’s a Civil War fort listed on the National Register of Historic Places. However, these days it is available for hiking and biking, and makes an excellent day trip.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived elsewhere twice, but keep coming back. I'm a video editor and freelance writer who enjoys watching people wearing University of Louisville uniforms excel at sports, scaling the faces of large rocks, and hanging out with my border collie/laborador/cattle dog mutt thingy that I have.
