This is a nice short trail that is supposed to be an interpertive trail. The signs are now gone but the view of the lake shore is nice with some old growth trees along the ridge. Entrance to the Sassafras Trail is near the Jenny Wiley Campground off KY 302 near the picnic shelter. Built by American Hiking Society volunteers, this .75-mile trail is easy walking and self-guided with many interpretive points of interest. Along the trail you will see species of Christmas fern, gShow more
