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 Cave Run Lake area has more than 40 trails. Plus the northern terminus for the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail is located in the northern part of Rowan County. Take the trail straight to downtown Morehead, where you can stop for a cup of coffee at The Fuzzy Duck or grab a bite to eat at Pasquales on your way. After re-fueling, head out on another downtown trail, such as the Eagle Lake Trail, Rodburn Loop or the soon to open Triplett Valley Trail.
