This is one of our favorite places to go. Nice variation of trails and terrain. We had our son hiking this when he was 3.

I'm not in great shape but I was able to do the shorter 2.5 mile loop to the Kentucky River overlook. The elevation difference was about 350 feet, going down for the first half and uphill to get back. Beware of the poison ivy that is abundant on the sides of the path.

Several different trail are available. The red trail is probably the most challenging but not really a challenge. It goes through the woods,very small inclines and declines. Small slippery rocks are throughout the trail. Green trail was very easy. Small waterfall and creek. Good for kids. I really enjoyed it also. Recommend the red trail

Trail is hard. I walk it usually everyday. This is considered a great challenge to get back into working out and getting fit.
