Along the banks of the Ohio River just north of Henderson, KY, John James Audubon State Park houses the world's largest collection of Audubon artifacts and offers exhibits on the artist's life. Here, nearly two centuries ago, John James Audubon, renowned naturalist and artist, came with his family to operate a small mercantile business and to explore the surrounding wilderness in search of wild birds to study and sketch.

Very short trail so not worth a special drive out of your way, but if you happen to be in Henderson, KY. During a portion, it does have a very steep stairway. Always have to catch my breath after it.

Nice 20min hike...there is a bit of an elevation change, but definitely doable

Nice, clear, shaded 5min trail

This was my first adventure back from injuries and somehow we did this trail along with the back country trail. was beautiful and loved exploring as we went along.

Nice day hike for the family young and old. Plenty of places to sit and take a break and enjoy the scenery.

ONCE AGAIN A SHORT .1 MILE, IN FACT A STOLL. BUT BEATIFUL AREA, SOME EDUCATION ON LAND EROSION EXIST ALONG THE PATH, WHICH WAS ENTERESTING. THIS IS JUST A SMALL PART OF INTERCONNECTING TRAILS THROUGH BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE. EASY.

fairly easy hike, beautiful lake side views, moderate terrain. some areas under construction. nice for a local hike and affordable.

easy trail, nice stroll. part of Audubon national park. kid friendly

short and easy, lots of birds and such. went in beginning of winter. connects to several other small trails, but otherwise nice stroll.

Nice, fairly easy hike. We got to the bridge and started to follow the rest of the trail but it was overgrown with weeds so the kids wouldn't finish. We turned around and crossed the bridge and finished that trail. The front of the KY Coffee Tree hike is all downhill.

This was the nicest trail that we hiked while out at the State Park. There are plenty of old grapevines growing up providing great canopy which was nice. It's also a change of scenery from your typical woodsy escapade. The walk down to the lake area was not strenuous at all and the kids liked being able to sneak down to the water.
