ELKHORN CITY, Ky. (AP) - The Appalachian town of Elkhorn City is the latest community to win designation as a Kentucky “Trail Town.”

The initiative is part of an effort to promote and develop adventure tourism in the state. Kentucky first lady Jane Beshear says getting certified as a trail town offers a big opportunity for Elkhorn City to boost local tourism and economic opportunities.

State officials say the Kentucky Trail Town Program is designed to help connect communities to trail systems and help develop them as tourist destinations. It will guide travelers to trails, food, lodging, campgrounds, museums, entertainment and other services.

Elkhorn City is the seventh Trail Town to be certified in Kentucky. It joins Dawson Springs, Livingston, Morehead, Olive Hill, London and Stearns as official Kentucky Trail Towns.
