This hillside ramble explores a preserved parcel of Kentucky’s Licking River valley. Set in serene rolling country, a network of trails runs like veins through a former farm, now reverting to nature’s dominion. You will explore everything from cedar copses to prairie vistas before passing old farm buildings and stone walls. At your lowest point, you will visit the oft-flooded plain along the Licking, where massive sycamores hold court. Your return trip ascends hills and hollows back to the trailhead.
