Visiting a spectacular river gorge 320 million years in the making introduces science in an adventurous way. Our family enjoyed a recent visit to the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area
on the Kentucky/Tennessee border. We perched on the overlook to view the turquoise water at sunset, after already walking along its shores. Our short nature hikes were tame compared to the whitewater rafting, horseback riding and other activities in this vast natural area.
Big South Fork park land includes stables for visitors who enjoy horseback riding. Nature trails cover all skill levels, including level ones near the stables.
