Legacy Trail (KY)

Not that great

September, 2021 by ohnoandyisateen

If you’re a cyclist who’s into simply getting miles with some mixed topography with no regard to scenery or shade, this is for you. As a cyclist who simply enjoys exploring and tooling around, this was not pleasant for much of the joirney. Too much traffic, boring office parks, and LOTS of sun. It may be better in 30 years when the trees they’ve planted start to mature.

Brighton East Rail Trail

Perfect for families.

July, 2021 by apalomonte

Great clean trail, easy to ride bikes. Paths wide and scenic.

Legacy Trail (KY)

Nice!

June, 2021 by tnnjpierce

We road a portion of the trail this morning. It is well maintained and very pleasant. There is lovely artwork built into the trail. We are novice bikers and this was a good trail for us as beginners.

Coolavin Rail Trail

Nice trail for the area

June, 2021 by sjf0809

Nice trail to connect the Legacy Trail/Hope Center Trail to the longer Legacy Trail and to town. Unless I missed it, it would have been helpful to me to know that the Coolavin Trail was also called the Legacy Trail. Makes more sense for the total mileage for the Legacy Trail.

Hope Center Trail

Good connector trail

June, 2021 by sjf0809

Either there wasn't a sign for Hope Center Trail or I missed it when I crossed W Loudon Ave at the southern end of the Legacy Trail. I probably didn't do enough homework before my trip, and looking at this site almost 3 weeks after I biked it, I now learned that this short trail is named both Legacy Trail and Hope Center Trail. The red marked trail on TrailLink had Legacy Trail end at W Loudon Ave. Maybe there was a sign for Legacy Trail, which might have confused me, since I thought it had ended. Maneuvering through the gates by the railroad tracks was easy. When it T's into Coolavin Trail (which I learned on a map is also called Legacy Trail), the left/east will take you to an endpoint by a port-a-pot, where as the right/west takes you past the Coolavin Park until it ends. Some of the streets have green painted bike lanes, but even though I took a few of them, I really don't know where they go. All 3 trails make up the 12 miles listed under Legacy Trail (which had confused me if you read my review under Legacy Trail).

Legacy Trail (KY)

Great trail

June, 2021 by sjf0809

I enjoyed the trail. Can't avoid the road noise, but looking at the country side, creek and whatever else made up for it. It was hillier than I expected, but manageable. Not just having a straight trail was nice also. I read the signs about the jockeys, horses and farms, which were interesting. I do agree that more signs are needed by the water tower area and the southern end to get to Hope Center Trail and Coolavin Trail. (I'll add a review at those sites). I was confused about the mileage. I parked at the YMCA, and went north until it ended at the gate, came back, went on the Hope Center Trail (both ways), the Coolavin Trail and a few blocks on city streets, and finally came back to my car at the YMCA and got a total of 24 miles, whereas the Legacy Trail was supposed to be 12 one way or 24 round trip on its own. I live in Ohio, so not near this trail, otherwise I would ride it more often.

Hope Center Trail

Interesting old farm remains from about 1800.

Interesting old farm remains from about 1800.

Legacy Trail (KY)

Well marked and maintained. Bikers and people afoot share this path. Much to see from horse farms to the city skyline. Out and back trail with several entry points. Nice access from KY Horse Park Campground!

Legacy Trail (KY)

No boring flat rail trail here - NICE!!!

December, 2020 by bikin-mike

I don’t think you’ll get bored on this ride. Lots of curves and hills. Enjoyed the beautiful views of Kentucky Bluegrass Country. Enjoyed the signs about the history of the area, famous jockeys, and the environment around the creek. I parked at Coldstream Park off of Newtown Pike which is about MileMarker 5. MM6 to 7 was along the freeway and quite noisy. MM7 to 11 was beautiful curvy and hilly riding through fields and pastures. Crossed the creek about 5 times. The last mile from 11 to 12 was along the freeway on one side, but on the other side was the picturesque Kentucky Horse Park pastures. Trail stops abruptly at a pasture gate. Not many large trees so I suspect it’s quite warm in the summer.

The section from about MM5 to 2 becomes more urban. After crossing Newtown Pike, had a nice section along the creek to the Lexmark campus. After the YMHA at about MM3 it becomes on-road. Had a nice wide green painted bike lane on 4th St through Transylvania University. Road riding isn’t my thing so I never made made it to the end.

Great pavement the whole way. Nice brick/stone milemarkers and plastic milemarkers every 2/10s. Needs a sign by the water tank to indicate the trail goes right. The left fork goes to Coldstream Park. Needs another sign after crossing the railroad tracks south of the YMHA. Trail goes right. Left is just a short leg to a street.

Fun ride and got educated too. Can’t beat that....Bikin-Mike Dec 2020

Legacy Trail (KY)

A few well placed signs would help

November, 2020 by dmisner_tl

Nice, peaceful, well maintained trail. My only complaint is that there were a handful of spots where riders weren’t given clear directions which way to go.

Legacy Trail (KY)

Great afternoon ride

May, 2020 by robinskiboo

My husband, boys, and I enjoyed the urban scenery and the horse farms. Very well maintained and populated trail. Our only complaint is that hardly anyone used the courteous term, "passing on your left."

Coolavin Rail Trail

Can we call this a trail?

May, 2020 by shoupe

This trail is beautiful. But it's far too short to be it's own trail. It's my favorite way to start on the Legacy Trail. The trail head has easy parking and a little coffee shop. The broke spoke and a distillery are on this trail. The neighborhood around it has a lot to offer. It's just effectively a warm up to the Legacy Trail.
