Description

The Anderson Woodland Trail is a short scenic trail, accessible and completely shaded. It reveals some of Lake Barkley's most scenic views. It consists of one main loop with a short walkway leading to an overlook. You can use the overlook to view the Kentucky State Penitentiary, (also known as the Castle on the Cumberland), or just relax for a moment and enjoy the refreshing breeze off the lake. There are several picnic tables and grills along the trail for you to enjoy a small cookout or picnic. Adjacent to the trail is the Old Kuttawa Recreation Area, consisting of a public swimming area, swings, playground equipment, horseshoe pits, volleyball court, two restroom buildings, along with additional picnicking areas. The recreation area also offers two picnic shelters that may be reserved.
