Glasgow, KY is a Top Place to Start a Fall Foliage Tour

A starting point for a more unconventional tour of fall colors is Glasgow, KY. Yes, there is plenty of tree gazing to be done here, with a collection of parks and natural areas like the 1,500-acre Barren River Lake State Resort, but Glasgow’s best-known attraction is Mammoth Cave, with almost 400 miles of mapped passageways. An added bonus for residents? Mammoth Cave’s temperatures remain constant, so it will still be a source for fun when winter comes. The colors inside the cave blend perfectly with the hues of autumn.

Don’t Miss: Mammoth Cave

Tree Types: Sycamore, Scarlet oak, maple

Great Drives: Take US-31 E (Jackson Hwy.) and KY-100 through Barren River Lake and Scottsville
