Letcher County guided tours are scheduled on weekends



Discover Letcher County Guided Tours kicked off its 2018 schedule this past weekend, Jan. 20 and Jan. 21.

During the winter offseason, participants can save more than 30 percent on regular tour ticket prices. Through March 31, the cost of most tours is $20 for adults and $7 for children 10 years of age and younger.

Last weekend the public experienced a driving tour through Little Shepherd Trail and hiking tours to Bad Branch Falls and through Pink Flamingo Trail.

Led by experienced and friendly tour guides, participants will learn about the history of Letcher County mountains while experiencing its majestic beauty firsthand.

Each tour includes transportation and a sack lunch or snack with water. Hiking tours also include a walking stick and prepared backpack. All of the tours begin at Pine Mountain Outfitters, located at 147 Hwy 119 S, Ste. 1 in Whitesburg, and can accommodate up to eight people (with a maximum of four children on hiking tours for safety reasons).

To register for tours, visit: www.discoverletcher.com/guided-tours/.
