London

With more than 300 miles of bike routes, the Kentucky Trail Town of London resting on the outskirts of the Daniel Boone National Forest is considered the Cycling Capital of Kentucky. 

Enjoy local dining and shopping, as well as easy access to numerous cycling routes for both road and mountain bikes varying from five miles to 100 miles in length. Or connect with a nearby trailhead and hike more than 600 miles of trails throughout the Daniel Boone National Forest. 

If you’re up for more adventure, try your hand at off-roading in the Wildcat Adventures Off-Road Park and check out the newest accessible trail, the Kentucky Adventure tour — a 1,000-mile scenic loop through the hills and mountains of The Kentucky Wildlands. At Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park, venture across a rope bridge and zipline at Treetop Adventure, tee off with mini-golf, and camp year-round. 

Dive into the local history of Camp Wildcat and learn about one of the Civil War’s earliest battles. Don’t forget to stick around for the World Chicken Festival, inspired by local legend, Colonel Sanders.
