Boone Trace Trail

The Friends of Boone Trace 1775 are dedicated to saving and preserving Boone Trace, the trail blazed by Daniel Boone and his thirty “axemen” in March and April of 1775 from North Carolina, through the Cumberland Gap to Boonesborough.

No other road is of greater historical significance to the founding of Kentucky and opening of the west than “that little road.” And it comes right up through the heart of Kentucky!
