If You Take One Trail In Kentucky, Let It Be This One
It’s a pretty bold statement to recommend just a single trail to take in Kentucky if you are ever forced to choose just one. Our state is known for its incredible hiking, biking, and walking trails and they cover a diverse range of terrain and scenery. However, in eastern Kentucky, efforts have been made to create an impressively long trail with a number of different activities that everyone can enjoy. The Dawkins Line Rail Trail offers 18 miles of cycling, hiking, and horseback riding fun, so if you have to pick just one trail to take in Kentucky, definitely consider this one.
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/
