Explore Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park


    Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

    Levi Jackson State Park offers the beauty of rolling wooded hills and an historic site honoring the pioneers who settled Kentucky

    This park is small but has about 8.5 miles of hiking trails. I hiked section of the Wilderness Trail and section of the Boone Trace trail. Visited the Defeated Camp Burial Grounds and spent a good amount of time in the pioneer museum looking at all the artifacts. Also visited Mc Hargues Mill which is along the Laurel river.

    Brief Visit

    My wife and I briefly visited here during a road trip from Ohio to Georgia. We only had time to visit the mill historical area, but it was pretty cool and informative! There were also Christmas lights strung around, so I imagine this area looks pretty cool during Christmas time! There is a hiking trail right by the mill, so you could probably park at the mill and walk over just fine.
