Address: Pughes Ferry Rd - CR-1035
City, State, Zip: Cynthiana, Kentucky 41031
Detailed Directions to Event Location: From US-27 about mid-way between Falmouth and Cynthiana, go east on KY-1284 to Sunrise and what looks like a 3-way intersection, initially seeming to give no choice but a left or right turn. However, go straight across this intersection onto Pugh's Ferry Rd which runs along the right side of the old Sunrise General Store. Drive carefully on Pugh’s Ferry Rd since it is very narrow and curvy. Bear left twice to avoid veering onto 2 little deadend roads. Quiet Trails is marked by a small parking lot on the right side of Pugh’s Ferry Road about 1.8 miles from the Sunrise General Store.

Project Description:

This is a Sierra Club outing, led by a Sierra Club outing leader. It's an easy to moderate 2-mile loop hike covering 2 main trails from the parking lot downhill abt 300' in elevation to the Licking River, then back uphill to the lot. Actual hiking time is less than 2 hrs, but will take longer since local State Nature Preserve volunteer Jim Allen will stop many times to tell us about aspects of the preserve's history, also to identify wildflowers & critters. Expect sometimes slippery or tricky trail conditions, no restrooms, sometimes over 1/2 hr from vehicles. Expect to be in the woods for 2.5 to 3 hours. After hiking around noon we'll lunch in the parking lot then do light trail work for an hour or two with Jim Allen. BYO liquids, snacks & lunch. Long sleeves & long pants are recommended, work gloves are required for trail work. Wear sturdy shoes with good treads for hiking or trail work. Parent or legal guardian must accompany all minors. RSVP required by morning of Fri 6/3. Limited parking area may force carpooling, depending on how many RSVPs. Look for final info posted at Meetup post by noon 6/3. Leader is John Robbins.
