Not sure why this trail is called Lake Barkley Multi-use Path as it actually begins at the Kentucky Lake portion of Land Between the Lakes (LBL). Regardless, we rode a total of 13 miles back & forth along this path taking in the beautiful lake scenery. After crossing the lake toward Fenton we considered riding over toward the LBL visitor center. However, being the Memorial Day weekend auto traffic was rather hectic so we opted to forego that portion of our ride and simply rode back across the bridge a few times. Tomorrow we’re heading toward Lake Barkley and plan to ride that area as it appears there’s a protected longer riding trail in that direction. Worth it !!!
I absolutely love this trail I ride on it and it is so beautiful and fun and it is nice to see others people on it too
Reminded me of Ohio trails I've ridden. Wish Bowling Green, Ky., had something that long. Only real suggestion is that an emergency call box or two would be nice. Saw five people total on perfect Thursday afternoon ride. You wanna be prepared
One of my favorites! Plenty of Shade.
I absolutely love this trail and can’t wait until my work day is over so I can workout in the beauty of this magnificent trail. Get in the game! Let’s go! This trail is where it’s at.
Ok route. I would recommended parking in the school lot. Otherwise you cross a busy road. Need a trail, hybrid or mountain for the trail by the railroad
Some cool tunnels and bridge cool Golden pond route nice too
We’ll maintained with pretty views. An easy ride for the entire family.
Nice ride good even pavement w gradual inclines mostly flat. Saw two wild turkeys or saw one wild turkey twice. Not many people on trail. No soap or tissue at Central City trailhead restroom. A little confused finding trailhead on Greenville side
Beautiful trail along the Cumberland River. The trail is paved and gravel. It also links to the Cheatham Damn Park and Campground. This is an older trail and pavement is bumpy and gravel part can be rough. All and all, this is a great trail for cycling or hiking!
My husband and I chose this greenway ( Springfield) to try yesterday in celebration of our wedding anniversary ¿¿¿¿. We are new to Trail Link and this is our second trail. It was perfect ! Weather gorgeous doesn’t hurt .¿Some adorable dogs with their people walking and a couple of other cyclists but not crowded at all. Will go back!
On the Fenton side of the Island, the west side, the paved part of the trail extends west from the Fenton TH over the bridge and ends at approximately 1.3 miles. From the Fenton Trail Head to the Sunset Trail Head is not paved. From Fenton to Sunset is not paved, 8.2 miles. From Sunset Trail Head headed east over the east bridge is approximately 3.3 miles. From that point, east is approximately 6 paved miles.
We hiked from the Fenton side to the Golden Pond Visitors Center, which is 4.2 miles, round trip 8.4 miles. We rode our bikes on the east and west paved sides but did not ride on the paved area on the east side of the east bridge that is on the north side of the highway.
We loved the hiking and biking on this trail. You can bike the unpaved trail, but you need to be skilled enough to do that. We are in our 70s and tried to bike the first mile on the west side headed east but turned back. We give this trail both paved and gravel a 5. It is a very good trail to hike. We cannot comment on the North-South Trail.
We estimate the total length of this trail with the approximate 6 miles on the east side to of the east bridge ar around 16 miles plus.
