The Little South Fork Corridor of the  Cumberland River reaches from the backwater of Lake Cumberland to the Kentucky Highway 92 bridge in Wayne and McCreary counties. The majority of the land along the river is forested with a few small farms at intervals along the reach.  The flora and fauna of this corridor are diverse due to the variety of habitat types available. The Little South Fork has recreation potential for wildlife viewing, canoeing and dispersed hiking. See our Wild Rivers program page for information on what it means to be a Kentucky Wild River.
