Apple Run to be Held on Dawkins Trail

pfynj0rhrtvpygCome enjoy the 48th running of the Kentucky Apple Festivals Apple Run!.   The Course is finding a new home on the Dawkins Rail Trail near Paintsville Kentucky.  The event will start and finish at the Jenny’s Creek Trail Head near Colista, Kentucky (easily findable by signage) and will run 1.55 miles in either direction on the trail.  The trail at this point is very flat and fast, with a composite hard pack limestone top.

September Meeting

Friends of the Dawkins Line Rail Trail will meet Thursday, September 17th beginning at 6:00 pm at Salyersville City. Everyone is invited and welcomed to attend.

Tee shirts are on sale for $12. Please pm me if interested in purchasing one.

A Note of Warning…

Just a reminder that the section of trail from the Sublett Trailhead to Carver “Tiptop” Tunnel has not been officially turned over to the Kentucky Department of Parks. This section is still under the management of the Kentucky Department of Transportation.

It is advised NOT to use this section until it is officially opened and turned over to the KyPARKS Department. The same applies to the Sublett Trailhead Restrooms and the Jenny’s Creek Restrooms. KyPARKS anticipates those to be turned over to our agency soon; however, a lot depends on the construction of the bridge.

Thank you for your patience.
