Take This Kentucky Bale Trail For A One-Of-A-Kind Experience
Todd County is a rural community in southwestern Kentucky made up of the cities of Elkton, Trenton, Guthrie and Allensville. As a largely agricultural county, a common sight while driving through it are vast fields of corn and tobacco lining a winding country road. With a lot of agriculture also comes a lot of hay, and the people of Todd County have found a unique way to put a few hay bales to use with the creation of their Bale Trail.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
People can use both hay bales and loose hay for their displays. The third annual Bale Trail is already underway, with sculptures having to have been set up by September 12. Even the the winners were announced on October 1, they will remain up until October 31, so you still have a few weeks to head to Todd County and see these unique works of art. A map of all the hay bales’ locations can be found here.
I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived elsewhere twice, but keep coming back. I'm a video editor and freelance writer who enjoys watching people wearing University of Louisville uniforms excel at sports, scaling the faces of large rocks, and hanging out with my border collie/laborador/cattle dog mutt thingy that I have.
