Explore the most popular trails in Carr Creek State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Carr Creek Lake was once home to some of the area's earliest pioneer settlements as early as the 1770s. Carr Fork, a tributary of the North Fork of the Kentucky River, is located 8.8 miles below Carr Creek Dam, and is thought to have gotten its name from William Carr, a well-known "Long Hunter" who hunted in the area. The marsh environment in the Carr Creek area is unusual for the Mountains of Eastern Kentucky, but provides a wide assortment of watchable wildlife. Wood duck, great blue and green heron, ruffed grouse, bobwhite, wild turkey, red-winged blackbird, warblers, raccoon and striped skunk may be found making their homes in this area.

Caminé el año pasado. No es un mal camino, pero podría ser mejor cuidado.

Sendero divertido para estirar las piernas. Cuando se viaja desde Sugar Lake Rd. Trail-head, la última milla es bastante difícil y compensa la ruta fácil que recorre hasta ese punto. Tropezó con un geocaché en el camino, así que fue muy bueno. Excelentes vistas y un montón de pequeñas cascadas, Probablemente es mejor viajar a fines del otoño hasta principios de la primavera. Me imagino que la última milla sería bastante grande y difícil de seguir una vez que todo se ponga verde.
