Land trust buys tract of land on Pine Mountain

Kentucky Natural Lands Trust has purchased 2,050 acres of Pine Mountain near Pineville in Bell County, establishing The Narrows Preserve.

Pine Mountain is home to thousands of species of plants and animals, and is a migratory route for birds and butterflies. The new preserve will be an addition to the Pine Mountain Scenic Trail, the Kentucky portion of the 1,800- mile Great Eastern Trail planned from Alabama to New York.

In Kentucky, 120 miles of the trail are being developed that will eventually connect Breaks Interstate Park with Cumberland Gap National Historical Park.
