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.

Hiked loop around and back to make it 2 miles. Signage is confusing. Definitely no pets or dogs allowed despite what this app says. Saw a small herd of 8 deer.

This loop includes the Backcountry Trail, which is 1.5 miles and pretty vigorous, plus a couple of other trails. The entire loop is nearly 3 miles and very hilly but quite enjoyable.

Did this at Christmas time while visiting the in-laws. Very runnable trail. Did the “back country trail” in addition to the wilderness loop and it came out to a little under 4 miles with about 560 ft. elevation gain. Saw some great wildlife too with some deer, woodpeckers, and cardinals. Will definitely be doing this trail every time I’m in the area.

One of my favorite trails in John James Audubon State Park. Not very hilly and well-maintained. Several nice foot bridges. Watch for ticks in the summer.

Very short, easy for walking, and well-maintained. Part of a larger trail system in John James Audubon State Park.

This trail is short but fairly difficult. Very steep hills with a lot of tree roots. Watch for ticks in warm weather.

Longer and a little harder due to elevation but nothing to extreme. Woods offer large trees and huge grave vines. Nice walk.

probably my favorite of thier trails, traverse ground, bridges, wooden walkways, lake view and wild life make this an interesting trek with a variety of views. Nothing to extreme but could be considered challenging for some.

Really enjoyed our hike to see fall color. Challenging enough to get the blood pumping.

Great fall color! This one was almost too hilly for the younger kids hiking with me.

I run this trail often, love it!

This trail is a little bit of a workout with the hills. I've hiked this trail several times over 5 years and I have always come across other people on the trail. The rain washes away the dirt and makes the trail more challenging on the hills. Warning: not everyone keeps their dogs on leashes so pay attention, especially around the corners.

Had a good time walking with my family

Easy for kids and dogs.
