Got to love the birth place of Paleontology!!! Lewis & Clark all kinds of interesting stuff happened here! Being a huge ‘salt lick’ for critters back in the day and all! The trail is easy and interesting! If you hit it up at the right time the the sulphur springs are smelling just right! There’s activities too! Northern Kentucky University has some star gazing events and the annual Salt Festival is held around Octoberish each year!

The hike around the lake was off limits because of concern the dam would break, hence the trail was not well travelled and more difficult than the easy rating. Also rather muddy and prone to one slipping and being injured. Enjoyed the hike despite the gawd awful humidity. My undershirt and polo where sweat soaked as if I had showered in my cloths. ENJOY!

Mostly narrow trail. Several significant inclines. Took our dog. Good workout. Almost all of it is in the shade during the summer.

good trail and the markings are clear. there are a couple hills that might be a struggle for small kids.

My 3 and 5 year old sons loved this hike. At roughly 2 miles it was the perfect length for them. With small elevation changes and lots to see they had a blast. I enjoyed it as well!

Good trail. Well cared for. Clear markings.

I would describe this as an “easy” trail rather than moderate, but a good trail-run nonetheless. Sadly, we didn’t see any bison.

Trails are well marked and there are several benches along the way to take breaks. The bison were pretty cool to see as well.

We took this loop from the campground. Rocky, rooty & slippery (it had just rained). It goes right by the buffalo pen, so you can get a look at them. You can also stop in at the visitor center. Very interesting. Take the trail back to the campground for the loop.

Rocky, rooty & a moderate incline. One nice overlook. The lake is really a large pond. You can only see one end of it.

Completed the Discovery trail, linking the 3 main trails. Fun to see the Bison and some of the history. But the downside is lots of hiking near campgrounds. Print a map before you arrive, not available if you start at the lake parking. Trails are well maintained and easy to follow.
