The Boone Trace & Wilderness Road Trail

Over 200,000 pioneers traveled the Wilderness Road between 1774 and 1796. It winds its way through scenery that was there when Daniel Boone originally blazed the trail. Woodlands, rivers and streams left remnants of this exciting trip through history. Of course it is impossible to see it totally as it was, because time has erased much of the original trace. The pathway was developed into railroads, highways, towns and private property. But what was left is a living museum of frontier history.
