The Kentucky Trail makes use of existing trailbeds from The Pine Mountain Trail and The Pine Energy Trail. One can expect cascades abound during the Spring. The history is in the hills. See where the Forest has reclaimed the land where once large bituminous coal operations existed. The Appalachians aren’t just the Appalachian Trail anymore. Come see what the rest of Appalachia has to offer.

Pine Mountain Trail

The Pine Mountain State Scenic Trail is a linear state park still under development.

This route is largely still undevelopment.
