The Central Hardwoods Scenic Trail spans the entire width of Land Between The
Lakes (LBL) connecting Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake. We designed this
multiple-use trail with smooth surfaces, gentle grades, and trailside rest areas. The
paved eastern portion of the trail offers shoreline views of Lake Barkley as well as wildlife viewing opportunities in
adjacent open areas. The central and western portions are made of compacted stone surface. Here visitors will
explore rolling hills and ridge tops of a central hardwood forest ecosystem. Visitors will enjoy a variety of seasonal
and scenic diversity. Spring and summer showcase vibrant wildflowers and a canopy provided by the hardwood
trees. Fall and winter give way to an array of colors as well as deep woodland views from ridges and narrow valleys.
Great viewing is available during any season. Outdoor enthusiasts will likely see wildlife that call the Central
Hardwoods Eco-Region home, especially early and late in the day. Seven access points give visitors multiple
opportunities to bike and hike sections of the Central Hardwoods Scenic Trail.
The Central Hardwoods Scenic Trail is a multiple-use trail. Bikers and hikers share the entire length of the trail
