Currently, the Dawkins Line Rail Trail is 18
miles long. When completed,
it will be 36 miles long making it the longest rail-to-trail in the
state. The first 18 miles of the trail, from Hager Hill in
Johnson County to Royalton in Magoffin County, opened
on June 15, 2013 to hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders.
This 18 mile section features 24 trestles and the Gun
Creek Tunnel, which is 662 feet long. The trail follows
the old Dawkins Line railroad bed that runs from
Hager Hill to Evanston.
