Louisville Loop

Louisville Loop (m. 54.5 to m. 74.0)

July, 2017 by connie40023

This is a scenic trail through 4 beautiful parks and a 5 mile connecting section (all off road) all along Floyd's Fork in easy reach of Louisville Metro. The trail is nicely paved the entire way with access to water fountains, restrooms, and bicycle repair stations strategically placed along the way. The trail provides a nice mix of terrain ranging from flat to rolling to hilly. This is a family friendly destination with canoe / kayak and bike rentals along with shuttle service in the park. There are even play and spraygrounds in a couple of the parks.

Louisville Loop

milemarker 14-25

October, 2016 by scibek

it has potential, under heavy construction as i write this; some new construction, some resurfacing the existing. interesting that the old part has been around long enough to need resurfacing before these new parts have been laid. the equipment on this sunday was parked trailside. on the west side of town beyond milemarker 14-25 in either direction, the trail presently doesn't appear to be rideable or perhaps even existing.

Louisville Loop

Beautiful but Challenging Scenic Ride

October, 2016 by mcalla7293

Entered this trail at Shelbyville road and completed a 30 mile round trip. The hills can be a real challenge if you are not accustomed to them. The surface is great and is a mix of asphalt and concrete. If you ride a recumbent where you sit back so far that you use a neck rest the expansion joints in the concrete can become annoying. The trail is very scenic with plenty of trail access points and several restrooms available along the way. When the whole Louisville Loop Trail is completed and circles all of Louisville (100 miles of trails I believe) this will be a real jewel for Kentucky.

Big Four Bridge

Big Four

October, 2015 by karen.m.payne.3

Not your typical trail, as it spans the mighty Ohio River. Beautiful view and amazing River breeze make this trail very unique. Riding the ramp up onto the bridge is a challenge, but well worth the effort. Love, love this trail!!

Clarksville Levee Trail

Beautiful and easy trail

October, 2015 by karen.m.payne.3

I would rate this trail as easy and very beautiful. It is flat for the most part. Beautiful scenery along the mighty Ohio River. For those of you with little ones, please note it is a levee...ensure your children are capable of maintaining focus to keep their bicycle on an approximate 5' wide trail. There are a few steep points off of the edge of the trail.

Big Four Bridge

Worth the trip for this alone

September, 2015 by ssedam

I am so impressed that both states and the communities put up the money to turn an eyesore into an incredible asset. Connects to excellent trails on both IN and KY sides, turning it into a unique experience. Plenty of restaurants on both sides of the river. Beautifully lit at night as well.

Louisville Riverwalk

Louisville loop

August, 2015 by sandyladd

Great easy riding trail with wonderful food at Mike Linings of Louisville on one end and Pearls Yogurt of Jeffersontown IN on the other. Lots of interesting sights to see in between. Got in 44 miles in one day which is good for us.

Clarksville Levee Trail

great ride

May, 2015 by target88

This ties in the Big Four Bridge trail and the Louisville river trail The levee trail starts near the falls of the Ohio state park which is interesting and the trail is only lightly used as it follows the river. I always visit Jeffersonville restaurants then cross the Big four bridge for more trails on the Ky side

Big Four Bridge

fantastic

May, 2015 by target88

Biking across the Ohio river is fun in itself but the Louisville river trail ties in on the Kentucky side and the Levee trail on the Indiana side. There are plenty of things to do and places to visit. I recommend a trip to one of the 2 Brewery's on the Indian side. Highly recommend a visit here

Louisville Riverwalk

nice views

May, 2015 by target88

The trail was clean and clear the day I took it. The views are nice and stopped at the riverboats to talk with some other bikers. I ended up going just short of Shawnee park as the trail had a detour.
If you do this, you most certainly need to link in the Big four bridge which allows bikes and spans the Ohio river. Jeffersonville Indiana has some great places to eat and yet another trail , the "Levee" trail can be caught there

When you include the nearby trails this can become an afternoon affair

Louisville Riverwalk

What a mess in the western half of the trail!

September, 2014 by steve.goodman.9022

Not too long ago, I hiked the Riverwalk from east of the Big Four bridge to Shawnee Park. The Riverwalk was pretty and seemingly well-kept east of about 31st Street. But from west of there, the path became terribly overgrown with tall weeds and was covered along most of the path with inches of mud and many logs and other driftwood. Sadly, the artistic and attractive bricks which spelled out history were mostly covered by debris. Even the caged-in area along the back nine at Shawnee Golf Course was in terrible shape and closed off. There was a very short section of pavement from Market Street to Broadway that was in pretty clean shape where the Riverwalk ended at its western terminus. It is too bad the city of Louisville, which touts itself as the 16th largest city in the US (certainly laughable statistics) will not keep the Riverwalk, which could be a real city treasure, clean and secure. I understand that occasional flooding will bring some mud and driftwood. But apparently this large section (miles) of the Riverwalk has been closed to bicycles and in progressive disrepair since 2011. I would expect much more from a city which aspires to be great and loves to tout its accomplishments. Louisville certainly has a LONG WAY to go to equal river cities like Cincinnati, St. Louis, and Memphis. In the meantime, bicyclists are unable to enjoy the western half of Louisville's Riverwalk, which I consider to have been its most enchanting section in former years.

Big Four Bridge

Big Four Bridge is open on both the Kentucky and Indiana sides

August, 2014 by todd7741

Recently road up and over the Ohio River on the Big Four Bridge. The view of the Ohio River and Downtown Louisville are great.

The Kentucky side of the bridge has a circular approach. The Indiana side has a long, mostly straight decline, with a sharp right near street level.

Both sides of the river offer walking, running, and cycling along parks and streets. On the Indiana side you can find your way west to the Falls of the Ohio Interpretive Center.

Cyclists should be careful on the bridge. There are usually lots runners, walkers, kids, and strollers too. Watch our for picture takers who may unknowingly step into the path a cyclist.
