Big Bone Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The museum has a few fossils, but unfortunately much of the fossil wealth of this area has been lost over time. The bison herd is interesting to watch. You may not have cell phone coverage on portions of this hike."
--Tammy York, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Cincinnati (Menasha Ridge Press).
"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. The museum has been improved, with all new exhibits. Stop here and give this place a shot."
--Johnny Molloy, Best Hikes Cincinnati (Falcon Guides).
