Lakeside Trail

Natural Bridge State Resort Park

Slade, Kentucky


This is a connecting trail between the Lakeside Parking Area and other park facilities. For many, this is a nice beginning to the hiking adventures that they will have at Natural Bridge. Beginning at the Lakeside Parking Area along KY Hwy 11, the trail immediately descends a set of wooden steps where it then levels off for an easy flat walk along a small lake. When nearing the end of the trail there is a short set of steps that lead up to a swinging bridge that crosses the Middle Fork of the Red River. The Lakeside Trail is also a part of the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail.
