Eastern Kentucky has incredible landscape, ideal for hiking. Dense forest, sandstone cliffs, clear rivers, whitewater rapids, waterfalls, arches, lots of wildlife and wildflowers. There are tons of hiking trails within the Daniel Boone Forest, some connecting with adjacent Cumberland Falls Resort Park. Beautiful part of the USA.

If you love the outdoors, Daniel Boone Forest which is adjacent to Cumberland Falls Park is a beautiful area of the country to visit. An easy mile hike in the Daniel Boone Forest will take you to a Cherokee Sacred Site- A natural sandstone arch. It is 50 feet high and 90 feet long. This is a beautiful hike and an impressive archaeological site.

What fun! I love horseback riding and the Smokey Mountains offers gorgeous scenary. My horse was a slow poke, so I was always behind. One of my favorite things we did in Kentucky.

Known as the "Niagara of the South," the 125-foot wide curtain of water is a pretty cool waterfall. Located in the Daniel Boone Forest. It was drizzeling when we were there, so pictures really don't do it justice.
At night during a full moon that you can see the moonbow, a phenomenon not found anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere! We didn't see this, but it is suppose to be spectacular.
This area is also great for white water rafting and canoeing,as well as hiking.

Good southern cooking for $9.99 a person. Very fresh salad, fried chicken, fried okra, onion rings, mashed potatoes. Everything I expected.
Favorite Dish: Not a surprise from the KFC hometown that the fried chicken was very good.

At nearby Cumberland Falls State Resort Park you can witness a phenomenon that occurs only two places on Earth (here and Victoria Falls in Africa). By the light of a full moon, the mist from the falls will create a rainbow.
The best times to see it are in late fall-early winter as the moonbow has the most color then.
Book a cabin or campground at the park early; they will fill up for any full moon night, especially on weekends.
I lived in Kentucky for a year, and this was the best thing I did there that didn't involve Bourbon.
Dress Code: Wear something warm and waterproof.
