Hiking Trails

Are you ready to get off the beaten path? You've come to the right state. You'll find hundreds of miles of scenic hiking trails in Kentucky ranging from bluegrass countryside and Appalachian Mountain landscapes to vast national forests and over 50 state parks.

Discover the green pastures and rolling hills of Horse Country. Trek through the mountainous terrain of the Appalachian foothills in Eastern Kentucky. Explore Kentucky caves and uncover unique rock formations in Cave Country, or search the Daniel Boone wilderness for amazing scenic views and hidden Kentucky waterfalls. Trails like the Sheltowee Trace and Pine Mountain Trail highlight the impressive lineup of hiking trails in Kentucky. The Sheltowee Trace stretches 280 miles from Pickett State Park in Tennessee, north through the Daniel Boone National Forest to its northern terminus above Cave Run Lake. It provides great opportunities for backpacking and through hiking, as well as plenty of access for those looking for shorter trips. The Pine Mountain Trail will extend along Kentucky's southeastern border from Cumberland Gap National Park through Breaks Interstate Park. The Pine Mountain Trail will also be part of the Great Eastern Trail, a north-south trail running parallel with the popular Appalachian Trail. There's virtually no end to the magnificent hiking in Kentucky.
