Trail System

Red Trail

This trail is a 4 mile loop that takes you through the majority of the park. This is a single track wooded trail which consists of exposed rocks and roots, mud, and potentially downed trees/limbs.


Green Trail

This is a series of trails that allow visitors to experience the meadows of Raven Run.  These trails consist mainly of mowed grass, are more open than the Red Trail and generally easier to walk on.


Orange Trail

This trail is a 1 mile loop off of the Red Trail and consists of open meadows, some wooded areas, and great views from a high elevation.


Blue Trails

These trails connect the Green Trails to the Red Trail at various intersections. These trails are often shorter and offer the ability to see parts of the Red Trail without having to complete the 4 mile loop. 


Yellow Trail

Located off the Red Trail, this trail provides a shortcut from Point D to H. This short, but scenic, trail offers incredible views of spring wildflowers during their peak blooming season of April to May. 


White Trails

These short trails connect the Red Trail to points of interest throughout the park.


Freedom Trail

This is a paved, barrier-free trail located beside the parking lot. This trail is roughly 1 mile long and is the only paved trail at Raven Run.

Points of Interest

Kentucky River Overlook - A 70 ft overlook of the Kentucky River provides a view of the scenic Kentucky River Palisades.


Evans Mill - The site of a historic grist mill built by Peter Evans in 1833. Raven Run Creek was dammed at the time and the water from the creek powered the mill.  Area farmers would bring corn to the mill to be ground.


The Lime Kiln - Built in the early 1900's. Farmers would have used the kiln fires to break down limestone into lime dust, which was then used for agriculture and mortar.


Moore Grave - This headstone marks the grave of Archibald Moore. Moore was born on November 25, 1840 and was buried in front of his log cabin on February 9, 1871.


Prather Homestead - The majority of what is now Raven Run was owned by the Prather family in the early 1800's. The homestead includes a historic home, cemetery, and smokehouse.
