Wildlife refuge offers fall color hike
The Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge will host its annual fall color hike Saturday. The hike will begin at 10 a.m. from the CKWR parking lot on Carpenters Creek Road off Ky. 37, about 13 miles from Danville.
This year’s hike, led by Rob Pendygraft, refuge caretaker, will include both the new Rolling Fork Trail and the Circle Trail, so there will be many opportunities to examine closely some of the lovely fall colors that make the knobs so appealing to visitors. Wear sturdy walking shoes or boots and bring water.
The Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge is a 500-acre preserve in the Parksville knob land and bordering a stretch of the beautiful North Rolling Fork. It includes 10 trails, ranging from .4 to 2.2 miles in length, one of which goes over Huckleberry Ridge; another that has a spur to the North Rolling Fork River; four ponds; a bird blind; the Mary Ashby Cheek Nature Center; and the Benjamin Bright Moran Shelter. The refuge is a non-profit organization and relies on donations and volunteers for upkeep.
