Getting away from the city into a wilderness that has so much to offer is always a new challenge. Near Lexington the Raven Run Nature Sanctuary has various hiking trails, paved walks and though not a huge park it is still big enough for you to find a hidden spot where you can just relax and listen to the wilderness around you.

If you visit the sanctuary, don't leave your camera behind. There are many beautiful spots to capture on film, from lush bushes to buzzing streams.

Address:
5888 Old Jacks Creek Rd, Lexington, KY 40515, USA

Opening Hours:
9:00am-5:00pm daily.
