Attractions in the Kentucky Wildlands

Beyond the obvious great outdoor attractions also lie hundreds of miles of off-road vehicle trails, the largest free-roaming elk herd east of the Rockies, charming mountain communities and many fascinating cultural museums and historic sites, along with some pretty unforgettable experiences, such as a visit to an actual coal mine, a sample of a little moonshine and a magical train ride through the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.

Certainly, a visit to The Kentucky Wildlands can feel like you’re a million miles away, even though it may not be that far from home. And that may be the biggest attraction of them all.
