BREATHITT COUNTY INVENTORY AND ACTION PLAN FOR ADVENTURE TOURISM INITIATIVE
Through the efforts of one of the members of the Breathitt County Action Team, the Venom Motorcycle Trails have been developed along a number of roads in Breathitt County and expanding into other counties. Signs have been added, a website created, and brochures are being distributed at the Yamaha Shop on Highway 15. The consultant developed a map of all four of the routes to augment the brochure and website.
Motorcyclists are excellent tourists, love to stay at smaller motels and B&B’s and partake in local cuisine. They also like to explore the back roads and love twisty, windy roads that have limited traffic. Breathitt County offers all of this. Already people from all parts of the state and beyond are hearing about the Venom Trail and coming to try it out.
A few of the sites one will see along the Venom Trails include:
ACTION: Continue to encourage motorcycle groups to come to Breathitt County. Periodically hold rallies and special events specifically for them to encourage multiple visits.
