Blue Ridge Outdoors Top Towns: Louisville, Kentucky

get more from BRO

As one of the largest metropolitan centers in on our Top Towns contest, Louisville offers an impressive number of outdoor recreation opportunities for adventure enthusiasts.

The Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, accessible from Louisville via I-69, is a vast inland peninsula and provides endless flatwater paddling, spelunking, fishing, and camping. If you’d rather head for the hills, take I-64 east toward the Red River Gorge canyon system — a nationally designated natural landmark. Simply put, the Red is the best climbing destination in the East, with sandstone cliffs that are home to hundreds of routes for beginners and world-class climbers alike.
