GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) — Officials say the development of a blueway water trail along the Green River will benefit communities by providing safe public access to the river, diversifying local economics and offering healthy outdoor recreation opportunities.

The Glasgow Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/1gLCpcO ) that Russell Clark with the National Park Service's River and Trails Conservation Assistance Program spoke during the Green River Watershed Summit about water trails. Clark is working to develop a blueway water trail along the Green River.

The trail will extend from the Green River Lake Dam to the Ohio River, encompassing 16 counties and extending 300 miles.

Elaine Wilson, Kentucky's adventure tourism director, said trail towns are destinations that allow people to access trails in national parks, national forests, state parks or large trail systems.
