Warrior’s Path

“It appears that this great land of promise, rich in abundance of wealth and game, was left reserved forever as a hunting ground for both the northern and southern tribes. It was thus beautiful and solitary when white man ventured across the great Allegheny and Appalachian Mountains.” – Sol Warren, A History of Knox County.

The Warrior’s Path was a trail used for hundreds of years by Native Americans who travelled through Kentucky from both the north and the south. It is the path that Daniel Boone was travelling when he discovered Cumberland Gap. In relation to Stinking Creek, the Warrior’s Path came through what is now called Otter Creek Gap.
