A stump partly remained in its hole just off Auxier Ridge Trail in the Red River Gorge on Wednesday. Stump holes 1 to 2 feet deep were in abundance off the trail where large trees had burned down to their roots, leaving dangerous holes for hikers.

  • The Wildlands of Pine Mountain: KNLT promo video

    Wildlands are an essential part of life on our planet, and it is essential for our future that we protect and steward them. Pine Mountain is a 125-mile forested ridgeline in Central Appalachia that is a critical wildlife refuge and migratory route through a region familiar with extensive resource extraction. For over 20 years the Kentucky Natural Lands Trust has worked to protect, connect and restore this expansive biological treasure. The Pine Mountain Wildlands Corridor is the largest conservation effort in Kentucky's history.
