Take I64-E from Lexington then Mountain Parkway to Slade exit. There are signs. 45 Minutes from Lexinton. Less than 2 hours from Louisville and Cincinnati.
Gorgeous area full of incredible rock formations and natural arches. Fall colors are beautiful. Mostly use wide angles for vast landscapes, but you may be able use a long zoom for wildlife. It's hard to believe something this amazing is so close to home. Great weekend (or full week for that matter) camping trip.
