Tunnel Hill State Trail

Vienna to Tunnel Hill.....and back

September, 2018 by josh.angle

Took the family of five (3 kids ages 6-12) and had a great experience! We took lots of photos along the way, even stopped for ice cream in Sandburn crossing.

Paducah Greenway

Very Nice!

September, 2018 by markmoore006

While on a road trip we stayed in Paducah and rode this greenway. The first 1 3/4 is gravel and is nice and shady. Then it turns into a beautiful paved section until it ends. The paved section is mostly open so it is pretty hot during the warm months. We hope that more will be added in the future since it is such a good area. Nice one to ride even if you are just traveling through!

Rend Lake Bike Trail

Very enjoyable biking

September, 2018 by ripley529

My husband and I just stayed at South Marcum campgrounds. We rode the bike trails there, at North and South Sandusky and also Wayne Fitzgerald State Park. We enjoyed it very much and will camp again just to bike there. Most of the trail is paved. We saw deer and baby fawns, turkeys, and even a groundhog.

Tunnel Hill State Trail

Great Saturday Ride

July, 2018 by aabk88061012

My husband and I started at the Tunnel Hill Trailhead and rode south 25 miles to the Wetland Center and then back. It was a beautiful ride. We were impressed how well it was maintained. A fallen tree that we had to climb over on the way out was already cut and pulled off the trail on our way back.

Wetlands Center to Tunnel Hill and Back

May, 2018 by profpurcell

At least one snake, five deer, several hawks and what I thought was a very challenging ride since I rarely do 46 miles. The washboard effect could be noticed from Karnak to the wetland center head to the center.

My sons and I still loved the challenge.

Tunnel Hill State Trail

awesome trail

April, 2018 by davemarshall54

I rode from Vienna up past the tunnel on a crisp spring day in April on my hybrid bike and loved every inch. Make no mistake, the gentle uphill grade to the tunnel may seem Slight but it took its toll on me. GREAT ride

Paducah Greenway

Dangerous intersection

December, 2017 by thairq

Very nice trail. Scenic. There are disc golf along the way.
Wish people would pick up their pet waste.
Crossing HWY 305 could be dangerous. Cars are fast and they don't stop for pedestrian. Be careful

Tunnel Hill State Trail

Very nice ride!

October, 2017 by markmoore006

I have only ridden from Vienna to Tunnel Hill and back but I did drive down to the Wetlands Nature Center at the southern end as well as go to Karnak and check it out. Even had lunch at "Our Place Deli". I wish I would have given myself more time and got to actually Bike the whole thing but I will be back for sure to enjoy the whole experience. It is easy to see why people love and care for this trail the way they do. I will give myself at least 3 days on the trail to fully enjoy it next time, especially the southern end. It is a shame there isn't any campgrounds listed close by on the northern half.

Eclipse Totality 2017

September, 2017 by dheis

Rode the trail from Harrisburg 27 miles south to view the Eclipse right on the line of totality. I was expecting a packed trail but was surprised to see very few people. The trail surface was fine for my hybrid bike. Enjoyable scenery with the trestles and tunnel.

After viewing the eclipse I rode back in the heat. Even though there are plenty of trees covering most of the trail the mid day sun still gets through. Thank goodness for the small town stops with water so I could reload and refresh my water bladder. I hope to take this trail again to Karnak.

I probably could have gotten home faster to Bloomington (ordinarily 4 hours by car) if I had stayed on my bike. It took 10 hours in bumper to bumper traffic to get home!

George Rogers Clark Discovery Trail

Nice always

September, 2017 by billbrockman

A very nice flat trail. I wish you could see the river from more of it, but the forest is quite peaceful.

Paducah Greenway

Nice flat trail

September, 2017 by billbrockman

We were traveling and found this trail here. It was a nice workout before dinner with good September weather. I wish the river were more in view, but still nice.

Paducah Greenway

Watch for Flying Disks

August, 2017 by koldtoess

We rolled to the historic Bob Noble Park on a hot summer Saturday to enjoy Paducah. Riding around the park to warmup, we hit the top of the levee rest stop and decided to head west first. The West Side is a short, tree lined wide gravel path that runs slightly past Stuart Nelson Park. We rode through a disk golf fairway prior to arriving and ridding around this peaceful park and wondered if this used to be their old fairground. The remaining section from the park to the trailhead was a little rough with washed & soft gravel spots. Returning to the rest stop, we rode atop the levee on the East Side. The trail on this side is concrete and unshaded with mostly industrial sites on the south and the Ohio River to the north. The trail terminates at the new convention center, but we decided to explore downtown on bikes (take your time to read the historic markers). We relaxed at the river park behind the levee murals to watch the working tow boats. Once downtown, go explore bike friendly Paducah with its great restaurants, museums, train engine #1518, theatres, arts center, unique architecture and the old Market building. Upon returning to the park, spend a couple of dollars to cool down & swim at the park pool for a totally enjoyable day.
