Spotlight Trail of the Week – Jim Beam Nature Preserve


The great thing about the Jim Beam Nature Preserve is that it is so close and easily accessible from Nicholasville. The bad thing is that the trail is so short. The Preserve is on a great piece of property, and the JCTA, working with The Nature Conservancy, has proposed 3 trail extensions to provide access to some of the areas you can’t get to now. That has been put on the shelf for now, but will be reconsidered in 2017. Half of the preserve is on the other side of the river. That will never be accessible, but it does protect the views you can get when the leaves aren’t on the trees.
