not dog friendly as stated!

This trail has a little bit of everything. Some beautiful big trees near the trail head and great views of the river cliffs especially when leaves are down. There are helpful kiosks along the way, but more needs to be done to tell the very historic nature of the old Bowman home, the pioneer road/trail down to the river and the relationship to the frontier history of the mouth of Dicks River area. Being a native of this area, I well know the early history of this preserve, but many are not aware of just how historic this farm and preserve area is. So, some history related signage would be great to go along with the natural history. Just a really all around good trail; anytime of the year! Walking down the old pioneer road to the riiver is a must see.

Nice hike- liked the creek trail off of Crutcher!

no good trail markers, but the worst was the outside shooting range...no matter what direction i walked, the constant shooting noise...

There are quite a few paths on this Trail, very hard to get lost, at the very top there's even chairs and a swing!

Scenic drive past farms to trailhead with a small area to park. We met only two other hikers on the trail. Hiked to the KY River with palisades towering above, lovely. Trails are well marked & benches are placed along the way.

Wonderful trails with great views. Two trails. One is 2.8 miles with the second at 2.5 miles. Very moderate.

Beautiful hike through woods to river. View of streams and cliffs. Saw some deer along the path.
