Discover the hemplands! Hemp roots run deep in Kentucky soil, yet this history has long been lost. The Heritage Hemp Trail uncovers these roots, and uses them to sow seeds for the future. Learn how hemp paved the way for our state’s early economy, and who made it happen! Visit hemp crops growing at Ashland and Farmington, eat lunch on the river at the site of an old hemp mill, and snap selfies at all the historic hemp markers! Visit to start your exploration today!

The Heritage Hemp Trail is brought to you by the members and supporters of the Kentucky Hemp Heritage Alliance, founded by Kentucky Hempsters, and is dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of hemp in Kentucky.
