Members of the Friends of Lake Barkley State Resort Park are hoping their proposed “Universal Access Trail” or handicapped-accessible trail will be ready for the public by the fall.

“The Friends of Lake Barkley State Resort Park were awarded approval from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to build a Universal Access Trail at the park so that all, regardless of mobility issues, will be able to enjoy the beauty of nature and the lake,” said FoLBSRP member Jim Mullen. “Now the work begins. We still have a lot to do. We’re excited about the trail.”

FoLBSRP members have been talking about this project for at least a year and a half. Mullen said they want to create a trail that anyone can use, regardless of their capability, although he added that they don’t want horses or motorcycles on the trail.

Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist and Convention Commission Executive Director Bill Stevens has said that the goal is to have a trail that is accessible to people with hearing, visual and physical impairments.
