Maysville to South Shore (also 61 miles):
From Maysville to Vanceburg, it will be easier to take Ky-10 and then Ky-9 to Vanceburg and there catch Ky-8. Kentucky Highway 8 from Maysville to Concordia is a series of poorly marked, small roads and it will be easy to get lost. Hopefully, in the future the state will make the signs and roads for this segment more robust than they are now. Ky-8 from Concordia to Vanceburg is fine, but one has to take Ky-57.
