Governor Announces $1.1 Million For Trails
Gov. Steve Beshear has announced more than $1.1 million to develop and maintain 20 trail projects throughout Kentucky.
Beshear said opening trails is key to expanding adventure tourism, allowing communities to attract tourists while also providing outdoor activities for local residents. The money can be used to purchase easements or develop and maintain trails for a range of activities from hiking to riding horses, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles.
The grants range from as little as $12,500 for a trail in downtown Olive Hill to $100,000 each for trails in Middlesboro and Earlington and another near Hindman. The money comes from the Federal Highway Administration and is administered by the Kentucky Department for Local Government.
