Inscription.  Three additional blue holes are accessible from the several miles of trails which course through the cave valley. Conserved as an "urban forest", the 23 acre site contains over 50 species of native trees and wild flowers including several large Tulip Poplars, Kentucky's official state tree. The valley's walnut trees contributed walnuts to the Lost River Walnut Company which operated here in the 1830s. Also, remnants of quarrying operations include three magazines for storage of explosives.
