General Description

Located in Mt. Olivet in northeastern Kentucky, Blue Licks Battlefield is near the site where Daniel Boone and his men were captured by Shawnee Indians during a salt making expedition. The park has a lodge, cottages, and camping available for overnight guests to the park. There is also nearly 6 miles of trails open for hiking. The federally endangered Short's Goldenrod calls Blue Licks home and can be seen at the 15 acre nature preserve. A junior-Olympic size pool and museum are other attractions the park has to offer.
