Abstract : In October 1995, the Fort Knox contract archaeology staff conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of two alternate proposed trails between the Burke Tank Motor Park and Wilson Road on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. The two alternate corridors, each are approximately 5 m wide and 400 m long, encompassing a total of 0.99 acre (0.4 ha). The total area surveyed was 400 m by 400 m, an area of 39.5 acres (16 ha). The selected path will be cleared and graded with heavy machinery. Both alternates were walked in their entirety, and the adjoining areas from the railroad tracks on the north to the parking area on the south also were evaluated for potential cultural resources. No archaeological sites were found in this study. It is recommended that the trail construction be conducted as proposed.
