Louisville Loop Is Lovely

March, 2021 by chris663

Wednesday, March third, midday ride from Pope Lick north to William Miles Community Garden and back. 20 miles round trip. Concrete path was in excellent condition, the creek water was in the banks and the birds were chattering. Benches and picnic tables to enjoy the views and have a snack. Super nice day. Mostly walkers. Plenty of parking spaces. Safe and secure.

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

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.

Fantastic!

We started at Pope Lick Park entrance, went to Broad Run Park, and then back, around 21 miles. The trail was either paved asphalt or concrete slabs. There were several bridges that crossed over the river. Several places to stop and use the bathroom. This app says there are bathrooms at Broad Run, but if there were, we could not find them and there were no signs, so we went back to the silo and used the restrooms there.

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.

This is the best Kentucky can offer right now

May, 2020 by shoupe

When I first moved to Kentucky, I didn't really like this trail. Compared to others of it's type, it's short, boring, out of the way, and a bit ugly in the way of scenery for most of it's length. But it serves its purpose adequately and is, from what I can tell, a rarity in the area. So it looks really good by comparison.

The pavement is generally well kept, though it is decorated with paintings in a few places (usually in the corners at the bottoms of descents), so cyclists need to watch out.

The path does cross roads and industrial drive ways with an extremely high density in some places, so keep your wits about you.

The southern half largely passes through or along side industrial parks, so you'll spend a lot of time near cars and exposed to wind and sun. The northern half is much prettier and feels more like a multiuse path should: lots of tree cover, nature and farm land and a much quieter experience.

The southern trail head, for all practical purposes, is at the North YMCA. You can find literature that claims it does or will extend into downtown, but if this is the case, it's not practical. Getting to the YMCA by bike is miserable. You have to traverse some of the busier roads in Lexington and the Lexington drivers are the worst towards cyclists I have ever experienced. My wife will only bike Legacy if we drive the mile to it from home.

The trail also lacks access to any sort of attraction other than the horse park. I miss trails that take you places for a coffee/beer stop or a quick lunch. Can't find that here. Not a big complaint, just something I grew accustomed to else where.

The trail does extend past the Iron Works trailhead along side Iron Works Pike for a while, but you're in the sun alongside cars again and the trail dead ends in the middle of nowhere.

Overall, if you want a trail to log miles, this is a passing one, if a bit short. If you are looking for a scenic trip, keep to the north half. The trail is far from the shangri la people view it as. There's just no other workable option for cyclists within a 2 hours drive that's longer than 5 miles.

Beautiful trail in a wonderful fall day

October, 2019 by lucagiori.dvm

I began the trail from the endpoint at William Miles Community Garden and turned back at Turkey Run Silo for a total of 30 miles. Very well maintained and signed wide bike trail. Along the way, many rest stops with bathrooms (very clean), bike tire pumps, and water fountains. Good for family with kids as well because there are very few road crossings. All the trail is immersed in the nature and there are no car noises. Most of these 15 miles are without shade, with limited sections under trees. Planning to continue the trail starting from Turkey Run Silo. VAM was about 1,300 ft.

Nicely paved trail; Good workout

August, 2019 by stvatandem

My wife and I rode our tandem, starting from the trailhead at the William Miles Community Garden off Rt-60, to the Circle K convenience store at Taylorsville Rd just south of the Pope Lick Trestle. The trail is well maintained and is paved with concrete and asphalt. This section has two hilly areas and the trail is a bit curvy there. The few tight turns were wide enough for us to negotiate the tandem through slowly. We rode on a Saturday morning and the trail was busy with other riders, runners, and pedestrians. Overall, a good experience; but I would try to use it on a weekday - when most others would be at work.

Beautiful Trail!!!!

Very Nice Trail

June, 2019 by bryan.pitts

Like most other reviewers, we biked the Parklands/Floyd's Fork section of the trail. It is one of the better-maintained trails that we have ridden on. This trail contains a mix of open-meadow/sunny and shaded areas as well as some flat and some very hilly areas. There are sections that are definitely more challenging for leisurely riders, but it is well worth the ride for the beautiful scenery along the way.
