JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - The second annual Johnson County Trail Day is swiftly approaching and folks are ready to enjoy the spring weather.

“Everybody wants to be outside doing something and we’re no different here,” said Johnson County/Paintsville Trail Town Committee catalyst Lara Pack. “We’ve got lots to do, and we want to showcase it.”

With several events to fit any age or activity level, officials say there’s a little something for everyone.

“There’s biking, horse riding, kayaking, walking, edible plant identification trails, downtown,” said Trail Town Volunteer Cheryl Butcher, “there’s just a lot to do, lot of events, a lot to go to tomorrow, and I hope everybody gets out and comes and joins us.”

Officials say the trail day is a great way to stay healthy and even boost the economy.

“There’s something for everyone, and the more we’re out and active, the healthier community we are,” said Pack, “not just physically, economically too.”

Folk could pre-register prior to the events until Friday, April 29 at 5 p.m. for a free t-shirt, but was not required to attend the events.
