Trail Towns

Posted by Spalding Hurst

In 2011, the Kentucky Office of Tourism began to look at the towns along the Sheltowee Trace and the Daniel Boone NF as potential locations as Trail Towns where they could potentially gain some economic benefits from visits by users of the DBNF.

The program is modeled after successful trail towns along the Appalachian Trail like Damascus, Va., and Hot Springs, NC. 

The STA worked with Tourism to encourage the towns of Morehead, Frenchburg, McKee, Livingston, London-Corbin, Stearns-Whitley City, to look at the potential by participating in the state developed Trail Town Assessment". 

The STA when possible visits these communities with the leadership of the Office of Tourism to share our experiences and encourage local and county leadership to see if there is some opportunity for their participation.
