    One of the wonders of Kentucky, this place is basically awesome not only for it's hiking trails but also for it's rock climbing areas. My mother and father have been going there quite often, and sometimes I get to go with them. I'm going on Friday, for my 20th birthday celebration (though my b-day was a week or so back)...I thought I'd share it with you all, because it is beautiful.

    I think i passed that a few months ago on my way to Tenn,
    Do they have a level bike trail their, Or one with not to many steep hills.
    Where is it and do you have to pay to get in, If my memory serves me
    you have to pay for a tour, Is that right o wrong, Wrong I hope.
    I go through Ky about 6 times a year and always look for bike trails.

    Some of those formations look primed for some good climbing.

    I'm pretty certain that you don't have to pay to go to it....I mean, perhaps for a tour, but just to hike there, I'm pretty sure you don't. I'll have to ask about biking trails and such...I'll get back to you on that, this coming weekend.

    I was pretty sure you would enjoy them, CL. :) I'm glad I was right.
