MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - A group supporting a northeastern Kentucky trail is seeking volunteers for two projects aimed at raising awareness about the trail.

The first project involves a reroute of the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail that will take it through Morehead.

The second project is the selection of the Sheltowee Trace to be included in the Google Trekker program.

Both projects are overseen by the Sheltowee Trace Association, which supports the trail.

The Morehead reroute will move the Sheltowee Trace to a route past Eagle Lake on Morehead State University’s campus. It will then travel through Morehead along Main Street. Morehead received its Kentucky Trail Town certification last month.

The reroute requires construction of a new, 0.7-mile trail. Volunteers are needed to complete this project by the end of October.
