DAWKINS LINE RAIL TRAIL

One would assume coal was the the impetus to create the Dawkins Rail Line. This was not entirely the case for the turn of the century the cash crop for Eastern Kentucky was timber not coal. The railroad derived it's name from the Dawkins Lumber Company. Visit www.parks.ky.gov for more history of the trail, printable maps, rules and regulations.
