Lexington Gets First Rail Trail

Fayette County's first rail trail was dedicated this past weekend.
A one mile stretch of abandoned railway in the Hamburg area has been designed for walking, biking and non-motorized use.
It will run from Bryant Rd. to Pleasant Ridge Drive and will be called the Brighton East Rail Trail. It's part of a much longer Lexington Big Sandy Trail envisioned to run eventually from Lexington to Ashland, a total of 109 miles through Fayette, Clark, Montgomery, Bath, Rowan, Carter and Boyd counties.
