  • Grayson Lake Fishing and Nature Trail Closure

    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Huntington District announces that the Fishing and Nature Trails at Grayson Lake, Ky. are closed until further notice. The recent ice storms that hit the region have caused numerous large trees to fall across the trails making them too dangerous to remain open to the public. The unsafe conditions regrettably require the immediate closure until the debris can be removed.  The public is asked to observe the closure as the Corps works to make the trails safe for use. It is not possible to know how long this will take. Once deemed safe, reopening will be announced through the media.
