"In early spring, dogwoods brighten the Kentucky landscape with their four-petaled flowers. Walk, drive or bike past historic Paducah homes along a 12-mile trail lined with dogwood and other flowering trees, such as redbud and weeping cherry. At night, parts of the trail are illuminated. The Library of Congress lists the trail in its Local Legacies project, which recognizes unique local traditions. Events include an art and photography exhibit, and $1 trolley rides along the trail."
