Pine Mountain State Park in eastern Kentucky has a cleaner, fresher look about it.
Fourteen of the park's hiking trails were cleared of debris from storms. Dead foliage was cleared.
The Hemlock Garden trail received a new foot bridge. A staircase was built on the Honeymoon Falls Trail.
Interpretive panels were added to five trail stops.
Officials say without funding and the cleanup, Pine Mountain would have been forced to close at least one shelter in 2014.
