This will be a slow hike as Napier discusses the plants, animals, geology, and history of the area. The group will leave the parking area of the falls at 10 a.m. and will return at 1:30 p.m.

To reach the parking area of Bad Branch Falls, from the junction of KY 15 and US 119 southeast of Whitesburg, follow 119 south eight miles. Turn left at the junction with KY 932, travel east for two miles to the gravel parking area on the left side of KY 932.

Hikes are also scheduled to Raven Rock on August 2 and to Lilley Cornett Woods on September 6.
