Many underground features such as caves, underground drainage systems, springs, and sinkholes characterize Kentucky’s unique karst topography. Made up of soluble rocks such as limestone and dolomite, karst topography drives the creation of geologic wonders such as Mammoth Cave, the longest cave system in the world. Join Parklands Interpretive Rangers on December 8 to hike the Highland Crossing Trail as we explore one of these unique karst features-sinkholes. The group will meet at 10:00am at the Big Vista Overlook in Broad Run Park. This is a 1.0-mile trail is of easy difficulty on paved path. However, there will be some off-trail exploration on potentially uneven ground so please come please come prepared for with proper attire, hiking boots, water, and a snack.
We hope you will join us on this pathway to wellness as we improve mind, body, and spirit. Participation is FREE, we just ask that you bring a healthy sense of exploration and a sturdy pair of boots!
