Legacy Trail (KY)

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Legacy Trail runs north and south through Lexington among green spaces, neighborhoods and parks. The trail joins Kentucky Horse Park and the Lexington YMCA but there are plans to extend it south beyond the YMCA to the memorial art garden named for African American jockey, and multiple Kentucky Derby champion, Isaac Murphy.

The popular trail is steeped in Kentucky's horse history, and families will enjoy the horse park, which features 1,200-acre working farm, museums and horse shows.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at three trailheads: Coldstream Park at McGrathiana Blvd., North Lexington Family YMCA on Loudon Ave. and Iron Works Pike across from the Kentucky Horse Park campground. Limestone pillars mark each end of the trail.
