Lake Barkley trail system to temporarily close for quota hunt

The trails at Lake Barkley State Resort Park will be closed for two days for a quota hunt for deer.

Kentucky State Parks says the park will be closed January 10 – 11.

Quota hunts help control animal populations and help prevent disease and malnutrition.

Kentucky State Parks say people looking for hiking opportunities can use the trails at the nearby Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.
