Dawkins Line Rail Trail

Enjoy hiking, biking, and horseback riding on the Dawkins Line Rail Trail. Currently, the trail is 18 miles long. When the second phase of the trail is completed, it will be 36 miles making it the longest rail-to-trail in the state.

The first 18-mile leg of the trail, from Hagerhill in Johnson County to Royalton in Magoffin County, was opened in 2013. This 18-mile section features 24 trestles and the Gun Creek Tunnel, which is 662 feet long. The trail follows the old Dawkins Line railroad bed that runs from Hagerhill to Evanston.
