Nature Trail


View from Jae's Overlook on the trail

Long C Trails has a two-mile-long nature trail that is designed for people to walk on foot.  We have carefully laid out a path.  The trail includes a small waterfall.

This trail is rated moderate to difficult primarily due to a steep 110-foot section of trail that requires careful use of a rope handrail.  At the bottom of the rope handrail, you'll see a beautiful waterfall.

 

Also along the trial you will see the largest grape vine in Kentucky (at least to our knowledge) with a 24" circumference, springs, gorges, switchback trails, and scenic overlooks.

If you don't wish to travel this steep section, you may take a shorter route, by returning to camp the same way you came in.  You'll still be able to see the waterfall from above, but you won't have to descend into the valley.

These are things you'll probably see in the spring: wildflowers (especially in April), Iris, Bluets, Woodland Poppies, Hawk Weed, Bee Balm, Blackberries, Wintergreen, Bloodroot, Trillium, May Apple, Jack-in-the Pulpit, Blue Phlox, Jacobs's Ladder, Hepatica, Doll Eyes, Ginger, Twin Leaf, Trout Lilies, Foam Flower, and multiple varieties of ferns.

This is sure to be a fun and educational experience for the entire family.

Admission is just $5 per person for unguided tours.
