Daniel Boone National Forest Passes & Permits
Welcome to Daniel Boone National Forest Passes & Permits
The Daniel Boone National Forest is located along the Cumberland Plateau in the Appalachian foothills of eastern Kentucky.The forest encompasses over 707,000 acres of mostly rugged terrain. The land is characterized by steep forested ridges dissected by narrow ravines and over 3,400 miles of sandstone cliffs.

These lands are federally managed to provide the nation with a sustained yield of natural resources, including wood, water, forage and wildlife. Recreation opportunities on the national forest are an added bonus. The conservation management of natural resources and recreation provides significant economic, environmental and social benefits in the public interest.

Millions of visitors come to enjoy the scenic beauty and abundant wildlife that the forest has to offer. Cave Run Lake and Laurel River Lake are popular attractions on the forest. Other special areas include the Red River Gorge Geological Area, Natural Arch Scenic Area, Clifty Wilderness, Beaver Creek Wilderness, and five wildlife management areas.

Over 600 miles of trails provide a quiet escape to more remote places within the forest. Hikers, horseback riders and other trail users get back to nature along the 269-mile Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail that extends the entire length of the Daniel Boone. Hundreds of miles of winding rivers and streams provide the finishing touch in outdoor beauty.

Come and discover what you've been missing. Whether you prefer to hike, camp, fish, hunt or just relax, the Daniel Boone National Forest is nature's best in southern and eastern Kentucky.
