FLOYD Co., Ky. (WYMT) - Spanning 18 miles long the Dawkins Line Rail Trail is the longest of its kind in our state.

Prestonsburg officials said tourism continues to grow and many outdoor enthusiasts are taking advantage of the local attraction.

Which is the why Don Fields, the owner of Pro-Fitness Multisports, said he is introducing the Dawkins Line bicycle shuttle service.

"Most people who start out riding bicycles or who haven't ridden a bicycle in years are not capable of doing a 30 or 40 mile bike ride," said Fields. "They would like to ride part of the trail without riding all of it."

He would like to begin transportation in two weeks with a weekend service on Saturdays and Sundays.

There is a fee to ride, but participants can choose their pickup location.

"The entire state of Kentucky is near the bottom of the 50 state list in health and fitness," said Fields. "Things like this rail trail will change that."

Groups planning to take advantage of this shuttle are hoping for more services in the future.

As of now, Fields said there are no set times or prices for his shuttle service.

To make a reservation contact Don Fields at 606-886-8604.
