The Slade, Kentucky welcome center is a great place to pick up maps and trail information for the nearby Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Resort Park. The staff is friendly and if your looking for events going on in Powell County or information on local businesses they will be able to help.
Before going inside there is a bright red train car for you to check out. We walked up and there were brochures inside so I’m assuming you can enter, but it was closed while we were there. I don’t have any other info on the train. Don’t remember if there was an information plaque and I didn’t take a pic if there was. I just like trains and wanted to share!
There is a large parking lot, a lovely gazebo and a rest area right across from the center. The Kentucky Reptile Zoo is just minutes away. We didn’t have time to visit, but it’s on our to-do list.
