I hope that Tater Knob will be rebuilt so that visitors can once again enjoy the magnificent views.

The Daniel Boone National Forest encompasses 635,000 acres in eastern Kentucky. The forest is noted for its recreational opportunities, including an extensive network of lakes and trails. Good fishing, hiking, and camping amidst the backdrop of rolling hills and cove hardwoods are a great attraction. The Daniel Boone National Forest boasts a Pioneer Weapons Hunting Area on the Morehead Ranger District. Other areas of interest include the Natural Arch Scenic Area, Beaver Creek Wilderness, and the Red River Gorge Geologic Area.
