Travel Tips for Frankfort

See the Confederate memorial...

by charlie8

See the Confederate memorial (Frankfort Cemetery).
Tourist may also want to see the Civil War battlefield on Fort Hill. The Stars on the last Confederate flag represented the 11 states actually in the Confederacy plus Kentucky and Missouri.
The flag now had 13 stars having been joined officially by, Virginia (April 17, 1861), Arkansas (May 6, 1861), Tennessee (May 7, 1861), North Carolina (May 21, 1861). Efforts to secede FAILED in Kentucky and Missouri though those states were represented by two of the stars. The flag was designed by the confederacy as a banner representing state rights.

Salato Center

by grandmaR

This is a free center for public education about wildlife. They have animals which are being rehabbed. Outside of one of the center's windows there were some bird feeders where I saw cardinals, blue jays, red winged blackbirds and a dove, plus a squirrel and a chipmunk on the ground.

Habitrek is a short nature trail through the woods and fields behind the Dragonfly Marsh. It is a "primitive" trail which features a sinkhole, rocky karst outcrops, and a variety of native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. A 3-acre field along the way has been converted from fescue to native prairie grasses and wildflowers to provide better habitat and attract more wildlife for viewing.

The entire trail is only a mile and is an easy walk for most, but wear good walking shoes. The Pea Ridge Loop Trail is a 3-mile trail that branches off from the already existing, 1-mile HabiTrek Trail and is rated moderately strenuous to the average hiker. The outside exhibits were:
# Bald Eagles
# Bison
# Black Bears
# Dragonfly Marsh
# Eastern Deciduous Forest
# Elk
# Habitat Gardens
# Mixed Mesophytic Forest
# Savannah
# The Living Stream
# White Tailed Deer
# "Wildcats"
# Wild Turkey

We saw all of the animals except the wild turkey, but we did not walk any of the trails.

Go fishing!

by charlie8

What fish is my brother after? The Bass.

Kentucky has Spotted, Largemouth, Smallmouth, Striped (State Fish, record 58 Lbs. 4 oz. (26 Kilograms)), Hybrid Striped, and White Bass.

One artifact, a carved Bass head pipe found in this area, tells me the Bass was a favorite with the Archaic Indians. Think the pipe was carved before Kentucky Pioneers faced the Shawnee, Cherokee, and Chickasaw Indians.

The book review below says more about Mr. Boone than I could ever muster..........................................................

Daniel Boone: The Life and Legend of an American Pioneer by John Mack Faragher
Award-winning historian John Mack Faragher portrays America's famous frontier hero who scouted the trans-Appalachian west for settlement before any other English-speaking American, surveyed and helped build the Wilderness Road, and led the settlers' struggle against the Shawnee defenders of Kentucky. Yet the complex range of Boone's accomplishments has inspired conflicting accounts of his life and character. Daniel Boone is an intriguing subject whose legends are enveloped in paradox. History portrays Boone as an Indian-fighting frontiersman, yet he objected to that reputation, proclaiming his belief in the Quaker tolerance of his forebears. He was a devoted family man, but his lengthy hunting and trapping expeditions encouraged the popular depiction of him as a misanthropic man of the woods. And although he served as a frontier leader of the American Revolution, his fellow officers suspected him of loyalty to the crown and treasonous sympathy for the Indians.

Switzer Covered Bridge

by Toughluck

East of Frankfort is the Switzer Covered Bridge. It's a Howe Truss that has been restored and is no longer in use for vehicles. There is parking at both ends and you are able to walk across it.

Kentucky as lost most of it's covered bridges. Less than an dozen still exist. This bridge was nearly destroyed by a flood and has been restored. To see this bridge take US 460 east from Frankfort about 4 1/2 miles (7.2 km) to Forks of the Elkhorn. Here, you'll find Switzer Road (left turn only). It's just past the bridge where the North & South Elkhorn River meet. Go north almost 4 miles (6.5 km) and you'll see the bridge where the road dips down. It's on the left (north) side of the road. It's also accessible from the town of Switzer, a half (0.8 km) to the east.
