Yesterday I took a stroll through Anchorage, KY. The sun was shining, temps were in the lower 80’s, and a slight breeze made for the perfect day. I walked past the post office, to the church while admiring the cobblestone and brick paved sidewalks, I stopped to read the names and graduation dates of city members printed on the brick pavers surrounding a city bench.
I walked on to the award winning Anchorage School. I took the time to read each species of tree that sprinkled the lush front lawn of the school, which provided ample shade. A short train passed by, and as I watch it, my eyes were drawn to the large clock and the emblem of the city sitting peacefully behind it; an anchor. From there I walked down to the start of the Anchorage Trail, a 1.2 mile path that takes you to E.P Tom Sawyer Park.
Tucked away peacefully in the heart of Anchorage is rare find for those that love the outdoors. The Anchorage Trail is a 2.1 mile trail that connects to EP Tom Sawyer State Park.

The mostly paved trail is clearly marked at all intervals and has several off road paths for bicyclist or those on horseback. This trail is perfect for pet lovers, with several stations containing plastic bags and trash cans for any mess your furry friend leaves behind.

The symphony of bird calls made for a serenade so peaceful that I could have fallen asleep. Willow Lake is serene and mesmerizing. The water sparkles in the sunlight reflecting the trees and a few stunning homes that border it.
