Cathy Crockett Memorial Trail Description

The Cathy Crocket Memorial Trail occupies the former railroad right-of-way of the Cincinnati–Southern Railway that was relocated in the 1950s when Lake Cumberland was formed. The trail begins along US Highway 27/State Route 90 just west of Sloans Valley and heads south to Alpine Recreation Area.

The trail features three tunnels built in the 1800s by Italian and Irish brick masons, in addition to the Alpine Coal Camp and Camp Greenwood, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Interpreted signs along the way discuss the area's history.

The Cathy Crocket Memorial Trail will eventually extend 6 more miles toward Greenwood into Daniel Boone National Forest.

Parking and Trail Access

There's a trailhead with parking just west of Sloans Valley off US Highway 27/SR 90.
