Hiking Kentucky (Falcon Guides)
Michael H. Brown, Revised by Carrie L. Stambaugh
"You get grand views of Lake Cumberland on this hike, which explores one of Kentucky’s most popular state parks. This hike is a lot like walking through a city park, because you are never far from roads, buildings, and cars. But this loop route offers something you won’t find in many other parks of any kind: a huge lake. With a length of 101 miles and a shoreline totaling 1,255 miles, Lake Cumberland is one of the largest man-made bodies of water in the eastern United States. This stroll through Lake Cumberland State Resort Park takes you along an unspoiled ridge overlooking the 52,250-acre reservoir at one of its widest points. You then meander through the park’s developed area to a rock outcropping at the water’s edge, and end up at a commanding lake overlook. You’re in one of Kentucky’s most popular parks, so don’t expect wilderness. What you do get is a chance to see and enjoy one of the state’s premier attractions."
