Bad Branch State Nature Preserves to close until March 1, 2023

Frankfort, KY. –(Sept. 28, 2022)– Bad Branch State Nature Preserve in Letcher County will be closed until March 1, 2023 for ecological recovery and trail system repair following significant damage that occurred to trail infrastructure during the recent flooding. During this closure, The Office of Kentucky Nature Preserves and The Nature Conservancy will be working to re-stabilize the trail system and make improvements to increase the safety for hikers. Most importantly, this time will allow for the recovery of the biodiversity of the site. We look forward to re-opening this important site and ask for the cooperation of regular users.
