Athens-Boonesboro Road between Ford Road and Grimes Mill Road was designated a Kentucky Scenic Byway by the Transportation Cabinet on June 12, 2020. From Grimes Mill Road to Athens has been a Scenic Byway since 1995.

Traveling this route, one begins across the Kentucky River from Fort Boonesborough, established by Daniel Boone in 1775, and ends in Athens, near Boone’s Station which Boone settled in 1779, making this one of the most historic, as well as scenic, roads of Kentucky.
