Morehead is an official Kentucky Trail Town!
Whether you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon hike or you’re an experienced hiker wanting a challenge, there is a trail for you in Morehead.
The Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail has a new section running through downtown Morehead. Stop for a cup of coffee at The Fuzzy Duck or grab a bite to eat at All Seasons Cafe on your way. After re-fueling, head out on another downtown trail, such as Rodburn Hollow or the Eagle Lake Trail.
