Nature Trail

 

The Creek

Let nature entertain you with a walk along a scenic wooded creek area. Explore the nature walk along a trail once used by buggies and stagecoaches. Search for the beautiful indigo bunting, vivid yellow gold finch, native red cardinal, the cardinal is Kentucky's state bird, or look for the bluebirds that are often seen along the nature walk. You may even be able to catch a glimpse of the large blue heron fishing the creek, if you are quiet.

Along the old stagecoach trail, where the creek makes a turn, you can stop, spread out a blanket, and picnic where notorious Jesse James (1847-1882) and his brother Frank (1843-1915) once camped out many years ago. It is said by Sarah "Anna Eliza" Lail (11/18/1910-3/19/1993) (the family Lail Lane is named for) that the James brothers once knocked on their door and said to Anna Liza's father "we're camping out in the forks of the creek area and if you don't bother us, we won't bother you!" Needless to say the Lail family did not check on the James boys and don't know how long they camped out or when they left the area.

Stage Coach
The stone wall

You can walk on through the woods, see old rock fences and find the indentations still apparent from the heavy use of long ago stagecoaches and buggies. There is only a small area of this left to see as the area is growing up now. The walking trail is free of charge. So come check it out for yourself.
