Visit These 16 Trail Towns In Kentucky For Endless Outdoor Adventure

Kentucky is home to countless trails for hikers, horseback riders, cyclists and those who prefer to travel via water. But did you know that our state has a collection of certified “Trail Towns” that serve as gateways to outdoor adventure in the Bluegrass State? Trail Towns are a part of an organized system that aims to make Kentucky’s natural beauty accessible to all who wish to explore it. They also offer essentials for nature-lovers, such as dining, lodging and outfitters. These 16 towns, scattered across the state, all provide a sense of adventure, as well as a respite from your time wandering the trails.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
