Stretched out across 18 miles of Kentucky, the Dawkins Line Rail Trial is a great way to explore the natural beauty and history of the state. Eventually this old rail line will be converted into a 36 mile long trail that can be used by hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. This trail is still fairly new and still a bit of a hidden gem. Most people have no idea that they can walk through an abandoned trail tunnel right here in the Bluegrass State.
