There’s Nothing Quite As Magical As The Tunnel Of Trees You’ll Find At Pisgah Pike In Kentucky
If you’re searching for a “take me home, country roads” moment in Kentucky, you’ll find it along Old Frankfort Pike and Pisgah Pike. Together, this duo of byways covers 20 miles in the heart of horse country, for an easy road trip that’s downright divine. This region in central Kentucky is pure pastoral perfection — horse stables, family-run farms, country stores, winsome small towns, and rural scenery — and these roads allow for a slow savor of it all. What puts this scenic drive over the top, however, is that Pisgah Pike rolls through an enchanting tunnel of trees that’s unlike any other place in Kentucky.
Did you know Old Frankfort Pike was a designated National Scenic Byway? Have you driven through this tunnel of trees in Kentucky before? We’d love to hear about your experiences along this beautiful route!
For another scenic road trip in the Bluegrass, the Red River Gorge Scenic Byway offers 46 miles of Kentucky grandeur, and is definitely one to add to your bucket list!
