Take A Trail Less Traveled At The Scenic Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park

Going for a walk is one of the best things you can do for yourself and the Bluegrass State is perfect for strolling through beautiful scenery. There are plenty of popular trails and paths that are definitely worth visiting and sometimes nothing can beat a walk through your own neighborhood or town, but then there are those times you want a bit more seclusion. Kentucky State Parks shared a list of “Trails Less Traveled” throughout the state and one of the destinations is Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park. Known for its location on Kentucky Lake, but not necessarily for its hiking, you’ll love the peace and quiet along these scenic hiking trails through Kentucky.
