Geocaching event will commemorate historic Kentucky-West Virginia feud

The second annual Hatfield-McCoy GeoTrail Event will be celebrated Labor Day weekend in Pike County and West Virginia.
The event is a commemoration of the historic feud. It begins Friday, Aug. 30, with the popular Stolen Pig Roast.

The Kentucky Tourism Cabinet says interest in the Hatfield and McCoy feud has significantly increased over the last two years, due in part to the miniseries that aired on the History Channel.

Last year, geocachers from several states visited eastern Kentucky and West Virginia to take part in the event.

All of the caches along the trail are designed to be family friendly, and finders of all ages and experience levels are invited to come out for the event.
