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!

Louisville Loop

Not family friendly!

May, 2021 by coachdes

Sorry but placing paint on two main heavy trafficked industrial roads to create Louisville loop does not make it bike friendly! Several of the curves were not thought out, squeezed in with no concern for traffic or biker safety, especially along the alternate route - that takes you through not so nice congested area - past the Kroger’s shooting site?! And why/when does the alternate route begin? No rhyme or reason, we missed it only to discover the path behind Shawnee golf course to Shawnee park is washed out, maybe two miles? Fix it... Come on!!! Come on Louisville, you can do way better than this!

Louisville Loop

Great bike ride for whole family!

May, 2021 by barrel_racing_peanut

We have gone to the Floyd’s fork sections quite a few times. It’s great!

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

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.

Louisville Loop

Fantastic!

September, 2020 by mcclurea6

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.
