Big Bone Lick State Park Hike

Big Bone Lick State Park Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This hike visits historic Big Bone Lick, a place once populated by prehistoric animals, such as mastodons, giant sloths, and wooly mammoths. Their bones, left in the bogs surrounding salt licks and mineral springs, are an important archaeological site. The state of Kentucky realized the importance of the location, developing a state park with trails for you to explore the terrain, and also see a herd of buffalo, which live in the park."
