Laurel Gorge

One of the projects we have become involved with is the preservation of Laurel Gorge.  These pictures show just a glimpse of the beauty that dwells in the gorge.  Access is very limited with cliffs towering about 200 feet above the river.  Only one minor road crosses this 16 mile stretch of pristine wilderness.  Because of its protected nature it harbors rare and endangered flora and fauna.  We are part of a committee which is trying to make the gorge available to the public while preserving it.  Experts from Federal and KY State agencies are working with us toward this goal.  We hope to be able to create a trail through it, part of which will be handicapped accessible.
