Liberty in neighboring Casey County has officially been certified as the commonwealth’s 28th Kentucky Trail Town, according to the Department of Parks.
Liberty joins Jamestown in Russell County as well as Columbia, Campbellsville, Burkesville, and 23 other cities as Kentucky Trail Towns.
The Kentucky Trail Town Program is a tourism and economic development initiative designed to provide a strategic plan for communities to capitalize on local travel opportunities. Formerly managed by the Department of Tourism, the Kentucky Department of Parks now oversees the Trail Town Program.
Kentucky’s 28 trail towns have committed to sharing their outdoor opportunities, culture, history and stories with Kentuckians and travelers alike.
The Green River in Liberty provides great water trail access, and paddling and fishing are also available at nearby Lake Liberty. Local volunteers have successfully developed their own local trail systems, including the Shut In Road Trail, Lake Liberty Trail System and the Liberty Island Trail.
