Liberty Park Trail

Excellent connector to Brighton East Rail Trail. Limited parking at the school or on the road. Some parking on the Brighton East Trail end point at Walnut Grove Road.

Brighton East Rail Trail

Short trail that gives access to the surrounding neighborhoods. Connects to The Liberty Trail at the Man O War end & Walnut Grove Road at the other. Walnut Grove offers access to some nice country road riding

Louisville Loop

A great trail that offers everything for the cyclist. Rolling hills, switchbacks, bridges over water & ravines, pallisades + lots of maintained trail heads.

Brighton East Rail Trail

Great for kids

February, 2022 by jonsmack220

Flat grade, wide path, and shade. Wonderful park about midway with restroom facilities. Amazing overpass to MOW. Exits to restaurants and ice-cream.

Legacy Trail (KY)

Pretty and easy tour through horse country, ag fields & college town

February, 2022 by bikeridesandbreweries

We started at the northern trailhead in an RV park next to the Kentucky Horse Park on I-75, a major thoroughfare. There’s a parking lot across the highway, but the actual start of the trail is marked by an obelisk within the RV park. We headed on a paved path toward the beautiful fields and paddocks of the Horse Park, only to have it end abruptly two miles later. Oops. Start in the parking lot across the highway. Or start in town so your round trip will end at one of the town's most popular taprooms.

Louisville Loop

Grade A+

Rode out & back from Fisherville Paddling Access, through Pope Lick Park, to Seatonville Road. Excellent facilities and great trail surface. What more could you ask for?

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.

Louisville Loop

Bridge day

September, 2021 by mem9622

We called this bridge day because we started on the east end of the Louisville side of the Ohio River at the beginning of the trail and then traveled west and actually saw and four bridges. The concrete trail meanders along the waterfront and is a very beautiful and well-maintained trail. There was a concert being set up at the waterfront area which we had to detour around which was very easy: we went all the way to the section past the railroad yard, where the mud disallowed us to go further; There was a homeless community underneath the bridge; Towards the end of the West Trail, there is a really interesting section where the markings of how high the river came during floods is embedded in the sidewalk that you bike along.

Louisville Loop

We rode a part of the southeast loop today. 11 miles of it, 22 total miles. Rest stops with air pumps. Nice wide paved throughout. Ya need to go if you have a chance.

Louisville Loop

closures confusing

August, 2021 by amyarrendell6

One southern point said Parking however there was no parking. Went to another location to park and had a nice shady ride along the river for almost a mile and the trail was closed with no detours shown. I biked through a golf course and then back the way I came. Tried to head south but the routes were on city streets or through a park to get to the river garden. Not clear where to go. Very unsatisfactory

Ohio River Greenway

Very busy trail this morning! Good views of the Ohio River.
