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

Beautiful view from the main road 160 crossing over into Virginia but no view at the actual Highpoint. I hiked the main road from the town of Lynch, Ky up to the service road so that I felt like I had hiked the mountain and to my home state of Kentucky’s Highpoint. Easy, service road is wide, well maintained. Beware of bears.

Very easy trail. More of a service road. Worth going to just to be on the highest point in KY. Beautiful scenery, especially to the south.

Big Hollow Trail. This trail is 11.7 miles but I did the bottom loop twice and came out at 12.7 miles. There are opportunities on the trail to shortcut it back. The trail is generally flat with few variations in steepness. Great trail for mountain biking or just someone who wants an easy hike in the woods. Not too much for scenery as I said the trail is flat.

Mammoth Cave is a great place. I'll be back.

We did about 6 miles of the trail while waiting to tour the cave, it was absolutely gorgeous and such clean air.

Down home country roads on a beautiful day.

Not bad at all. Worth the trip again and again. Trails are well kept and the caves are worth the going on the tour. If you get chilled easy bring a very light jacket.

Beautiful and scenic trails, but the real attraction is underground. We took the domes and dripstones tour which is not for anyone that is claustrophobic. The initial descent is 200+ stairs that are extremely narrow in spots. A great contrast to this area of the cave is the historic entrance area. The historic entrance truly lives up the name mammoth cave and should not be missed.

Keep in mind the cave temperature is usually around 60 degrees so you'll want to be sure to bring a jacket even in summer.

Forest Service Road. Towers on top. For view, overlook on VA side (160)

great dive along the river beautiful in the fall with the changing leaves

Scenic winding country roads.

A great 'trail' for my handicapped son. Plenty of wildlife, and different wilderness to keep him entertained and able to enjoy a bit of nature.

This is a wonderful drive. The rolling hills, picturesque farms and beautiful forests and fields.
