Directions: From Dawson Springs, go 5 miles west on Highway 62 until you pass the sign for Keene Wildlife Area. Parking is on left side of the road in front of the bridge. The walk-in trail is right there by the bridge and can be a little muddy.

Not real sure the geographical location of Murray... I'm assuming Murray State (same place right?)... just travel east on Western Kentucky Parkway, take one of the exits to highway 62. If you can't find the area on 62 heading east, go to Dawson Springs, turn around, and set your mileage marker. You can't miss it then.

Good luck.

Was their yesterday some very nice stuff a bit on the mossy side in places-- the keene wildlife a bit hard to spot but if you are coming from dawson springs take a left at archery road-- drive back a ways there is a small parking area there to your right (rather than park on the side of the road) follow trail till you reach a "T" if you go right at the "T" it will take you to the cliff top. There is also a trail to get down to the bottom about 50 yards past the overhang. also make you check anchors as a few that were off the main cliff line on free standing boulders are not up to par.
