Locally, Boone Creek Outdoors is a model for ecotourism driven sustainable preservation. Located on a former commercial site that served host to many highway related businesses such as restaurants, gas stations and even a cathouse! The BCO is dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of the Boone Creek Gorge and the spring fed creek that formed it. Boone Creek Outdoors is committed to providing minimally invasive access to our unique Bluegrass landscape. Our tours allow for instructional and educational programing and the maintenance care for our trees and landscape.
Abundant wildlife such as Deer, Bobcat, Turkey, Otter, Mink, Fox, Beaver, Wood Duck, Grouse, Flying Squirrels, pileated woodpeckers and most birds of prey are routinely spotted here. The Wildflowers and Geology as well as Significant Cultural History offer opportunities for experiences on our tour around the gorge that are unique to the area and the region.
