The Dawkins Rail Trail takes riders, walkers and runners along the route where trains roared through the hills of Magoffin and Johnson Counties and will soon cover 36 miles in Breathitt County. The trail is 18 miles that even take visitors inside an old tunnel and across bridges. The trail is now set to add camping sites, cabins, a restaurant, laundry mat, showers, and stalls.”This is a 15- acre bottom development, and on the far end down there, it’s going to be primitive camping. We’re going to have six one bedroom cabins, and we’re going to have both traditional camping on both sides of the bottom there, some will be for large RVs, some for smaller,” says spokesperson Victoria Doucette.
