Carter Caves State Resort Park - 3 Bridges/ 4 C's Trails

ky

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 6.0 miles


Loop trail combining the 3 Bridges Trail and part of the 4 C's Trail
  • Spillway and Swinging Bridge

Enjoy Carter Caves with this loop hike.  It combines the 3 Bridges Trail and the 4 C's trail to give you a fun and challenging day out in the woods.  Scenic views of Smokey Valley Lake, natural arches, swinging bridges and a spillway from the lake are just some of the sights that you will see.  Backcountry camping is allowed in only one spot and that is at the Johnson Homeplace, which is not too far from the spillway and swinging bridge (nice lunch spot).  From the Johnson Homeplace try to see if you can spot a natural spring on the left not too far way.  Carter Caves is in Olive Hill, Ky.
