Adventure Tourism: Knott County’s Fall Trail Ride Set

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The Knott County Fall Trail Ride, one of the largest trail riding events in Kentucky and the Southeast, is set for Oct. 3-6.

Thousands of riders and horses will descend upon the 43,000-acre Mine Made Paradise Adventure Park located just outside Hindman in Knott County.

There are more than 100 miles of trails at the park, and plenty of group rides are scheduled throughout the event. In addition to the riding and camping, there will be equine vendors, great food and live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.  Musical acts include Logan Hall, Halfway to Hazard and Keith Anderson. 

Admission for the entire event is $20 per person, and children under 12 are admitted free. While the event doesn’t kick off officially until until Thursday, Oct. 3, many people will come early and stay all week. The campground will open at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29.
