  • God's beauty is abundant here. The trails were clearly marked. Picnic areas and grills clean. Parking areas were nice and the roads were smooth driving through. The cabins have signs in front with their history. A perfect place to visit.
  • This hiking trail is one of the most scenic in the area! There are two lakes, and there are tons of trail to walk. Due to the elevation 1 mile of walking is a great workout. It’s a beautiful area with picnic benches and tables, family friendly, pet friendly, and just an awesome place to visit near Fort Knox! Highly recommended.
