Deer, coyote, owls and hawks are among the many families of wildlife making their homes along this Kentucky section of The Trace. At sunrise and sunset the animals are particularly active, so careful driving is a must. At the National Recreation Area, take a quick detour on the 3.5-mile loop through the Elk & Bison Prairie. The nearby Golden Pond Planetarium houses a visitor center.
