Welcome to your one-stop destination for all information regarding the Cross Kentucky Trails Project. This initiative seeks to map the trails of the Commonwealth by incorporating data from agency mapping efforts into the Commonwealth’s Award-Winning Geographic Information System in order to identify all of Kentucky’s numerous trails and associated recreation resources. Additionally, this site provides references to additional Internet Mapping Sites, GPS services and related links regarding the Cross Kentucky Trail Project.
Kentucky is an adventure waiting to happen and this project embodies the spirit of those who appreciate the wide range of recreational opportunities here in the Commonwealth. Our state is truly the premier frontier for Adventure Tourism in the nation, enhancing the economies of many rural areas as it attracts lovers of the outdoors and adventure seekers from across the US and globe.
The Cross Kentucky Trail project is central to the success of Adventure Tourism in the Commonwealth. The trail system resulting from this initiative will be a figurehead for the ability of Adventure Tourism to positively impact all regions of the state, from rural to urban. The First Lady and the Lt. Governor's Office are spearheading the effort with the primary goal of completing a trail that stretches from the Eastern Coal Fields to the Western Coal Fields of Kentucky.
