Parks Staff Giving Tips on Favorite Hiking Trails

By The Associated Press | 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Parks staff members are offering free tips on some of their favorite hiking trails across the state.

The suggested trails are on the state parks website, , under "staff picks."

Staff members offer basic information about the trails, photos and brief descriptions of what guests will see and experience at the trails.

Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker says the options range from easy one-mile walks to longer and more challenging treks in the woods.

The state parks are participating in Gov. Steve Beshear's initiative to promote health and fitness.
