With the return of spring in La Grange, it’s time to turn your sights toward adventuring throughout Kentucky. One of the best destinations in the state is the Big Bone Lick State Historic Site, home to some of the most majestic animals on the planet. If you’re planning to kick off the season with a road trip, here are a few reasons to check out Big Bone Lick.
Perhaps the most exciting reason to check out Big Bone Lick is to get a closer look at real bison. A herd of bison can always be found roaming somewhere around the park, so make sure you have your camera ready.
What’s better than working up a sweat and taking in some beautiful sights on a spring day? Big Bone Lick is home to a handful of great hiking trails covering about 4.5 miles of the park. The Coralberry Trail makes up 2 miles of that and offers some of the most challenging terrain. If you want a more leisurely stroll, try the Bison Trace Trail or Cedar Run Trail.
According to the Kentucky Department of Parks, mid to late spring is one of the best times to see the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, a beautiful bird that sounds as lovely as it looks. Big Bone Lick is a great place for all-season birding, hosting owls in the summer and more than 50 species of birds in the winter.
