London-Laurel County Trail Town
LONDON TO BE CERTIFIED AS TRAIL TOWN IN MAY 2015
After three years of diligent work by the entire community, London will be certified as Kentucky’s 5th official Trail Town in May.
The goal of the Kentucky Trail Town program is to better connect communities across the Commonwealth with their natural resources. Throughout Laurel County there are pictur-esque cycling roads, beautiful national forests with more miles of hiking/mountain bike trails than any Kentucky county, a fantastic state park with an extensive trail system, a newly developed city park with brand spanking new mountain bike/hiking trails, the best canoe trails in the entire state, and a soon to be developed downtown walking tour. By connecting these outdoor areas, Laurel County can provide adventure tourists with need-ed goods and services, while highlighting and sharing the things that make London and Laurel County unique. These connections will create a vibrant tourism economy and a healthier place to live.
