Kentucky's Scenic Route 90

57.9 miles: 1 hours, 5 minutes

You’ll pass the Cumberland River twice—at the beginning of the route and toward its ending—during this portion of Kentucky’s Scenic Route 90. Leaf-peeping enthusiasts take note: The warm autumn leaves reflecting in the water and the beauty of being surrounded by nature provide many opportunities for creating cherished memories.


Kentucky’s Scenic Route 90 is a relaxing journey through woods, meadows and small communities, until you cross the Cumberland River on either end of the byway, when the drive turns spectacular. Blue water—so smooth it looks like an airplane landing strip—flows under bridges next to foliage-laden shores.
