Kentucky is home to 45 state parks, including 17 resort parks. State parks span over 48,000 acres and offer 300 miles of hiking trails. Park visitors have access to a number of outdoor recreational activities, including hiking, biking and horseback riding.
Due to the state’s ongoing battle with COVID-19, park guests are required to follow all public health safety guidelines, including face covering requirements and social distancing.
While visiting park grounds, guests should adhere to the following:
- Wear a mask or facial covering in public spaces indoors and when unable to maintain a safe social distance outdoors;
- Do not use parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms;
- Maintain safe social distancing of at least 6 feet;
- Do not congregate in groups;
- Avoid games that require close contact; and
- Move to a different location to avoid crowds.
