When the trees are green and the skies are blue, it’s fun to go explore new places. There’s just nothing like a day of adventures when the weather is absolutely perfect. But just because the winter weather is creeping in and the trees are bare of leaves doesn’t mean its time to stop exploring; instead, we just have to bundle up a little more when we go looking for something new to discover. Last weekend, we drove over to Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park in London, Kentucky and found a beautiful state park full of new adventures!

Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park
Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park is located just 10 minutes out of London, Kentucky off I-75. There is no fee to enter the park. When you first enter the park, you will see the McHargue’s Mill where you can park, walk around the water, enjoy the ducks and then explore the Mill area.
Tip: Even though there are lots of ducks and geese on the water, there is a sign that tells you not to feed them. So enjoy them, take pictures and walk around, but don’t feed the ducks!
Take the time to walk around the other side of the mill and enjoy the views of the water.
