Rails to Trails

Currently, several rail trail organizations are assisting in the development, funding, and promotion of rail trails in Kentucky, including both governmental and non-governmental agencies.
Based on data furnished by the KY Rails to Trails Council (KRTC), Kentucky has 75 miles of existing rail trails as of late 2014.  An estimated 278 additional miles of rail trails are currently in a planning or development stage throughout Kentucky.  Where available, a map and descriptions of these trails can be seen in Chapter 6 of the 2015 Kentucky Statewide Rail Plan.  More information, including trail use and hours available to the public, can be found at the KRTC website, http://www.kyrailtrail.org/.
