Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"It’s not often that you can walk in the footsteps of an American icon, but on this hike that is exactly what you will be doing as you hike the same lanes and forest paths where Daniel Boone once tilled the land, trapped and hunted, and learned the skills that would serve him so well as an adult.

This easy hike leads you from one building to the next, giving you a feel for how things were back in the mid-1700s. Be sure to bring your children."

"Daniel Boone explored a lot of country in his day, from Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Virginia to Kentucky, Missouri, and Florida. Always, he knew where he was. Sort of. “I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks,” he once famously said. You don’t have to worry about that on this hike. This walking tour of the Daniel Boone Homestead is an easy one, following wide, flat gravel paths for little more than a mile. It’s definitely a walk worth taking, though. It offers a glimpse of pioneer life as Boone would have lived it, with some more-modern touches added." Read more
