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.

Shaker Trace Trail

Great ride

August, 2020 by johnson_assc

My wife and I are wanting to be outside and get some exercise. Riding this trail does the trick. Not to hilly but enough of a challenge for us. You ride through some nice woods and several fields. I think we saw about 25 rabbits on the trail last night. We also saw a turkey earlier this week. I should add that we are starting around 7pm so the trail is not to busy but it is still being used by lots of people. It is very clean and as I said a good ride.

Columbus People Trail

Very frustrating and disappointing day

August, 2020 by julie.dwenger

This trail has a lot of potential so for the life of me I can't understand why the city of Columbus doesn't take advantage of it more by making tweaks that seem so simple to me. There are probably some restaurants along the way but I couldn't look for them I was so busy trying to figure out where the h*** I was supposed to go without getting hit by a car. Parts of this trail are very nice but it's disconnected at numerous points along the way and there is no signage whatsoever for guidance. Absolutely NO SIGNAGE AT ALL. ANYWHERE. You can wind up taking a wrong turn because this trail intersects with others, as we did, and take your $2000 bike into a mudslide area, as we did. And if it's rained at all before your visit, plan on a swampy ride. If you are a local it might be okay, but if you aren't and are looking for a nice ride, I'd go somewhere else. Not impressed. We won't be back.

Columbus People Trail

Columbus

June, 2020 by patrickhconnor

Great peaceful ride around Columbus. When not on trail, the path is on quiet city streets. The only small issue is on the south end of trail because you need to cross some busy city streets.

Lewis and Clark Bridge Trail

Interesting Architecture Good River View

May, 2020 by riordanmj

With some steady uphills at both ends, this is a walk that shouldn’t be too difficult. The approaches are asphalt, all the bridge surfaces are concrete so it’s not forgiving at all. Obviously there is no real shade, so choose your time wisely. Bring hydration and sunscreen! From parking area to parking area is about 2.5 miles so you can get a 5 mile round trip. Busy at times with bikes, runners and walkers, but it’s wide enough you don’t feel crowded. Traffic noise is very loud unfortunately given the amount of truck traffic.

Louisville Loop

Support the loop

February, 2020 by hel_l3rook351

My dog and I have completed every bit of this loop that has been completed. We have a picture of every mile marker I will never forget doing this with my dog. I don’t thank he will get to see it be completed nor will l

Ohio River Greenway

Very nice bike path

January, 2020 by mjdriverrat

We started at the Ohio River Green Way sign parking lot east of Falls Of the Ohio State Park. There's a pretty steep grade after crossing the road then a gradual decline as the path follows the top of the levee for quite a distance. The path is paved and in perfect condition with some interesting points of interest along the way. Highly recommended!

Lewis and Clark Bridge Trail

A great start!

December, 2019 by greenfatburner

Kudos to the folks that designed this addition to the Lewis & Clark Bridge. A great way to connect Indiana and Kentucky for more cycling/hiking possibilities. I rode across at night and look forward to riding it during the day to really take in the scenery. Hope they expand on this beautiful trail riding it in

Dearborn Trails (Aurora - Lawrenceburg - Greendale)

Fun...but

October, 2019 by amerlo2mmm

Most of the trail is nice with the beauty of nature, flat pavement, fun tunnels and bridges. All that is nice for the family. But it would be better if it were all connected without having to go on the road. That part scared my 9 year old. Otherwise, It was nice to get ice cream in Aurora and there’s a strongs pizza right by the lawrenceburg trailhead. And parking is free and plentiful.

Lewis and Clark Bridge Trail

Excellent Contribution to Louisville Loop

October, 2019 by edmcanally

L&C Bridge is a tremendous addition to the recreation opportunities in the area. Included in the initial design, this is a beautiful and scenic river crossing. On my crossing I saw several bicycles, walkers and a runner. Since it has yet to meet up with the Loop on the south side and just stops a mile inland on the Indiana side, this trail is a reminder “If you build it, they will come.” Easy access off River Road in Louisville.

Louisville Loop

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.

Dearborn Trails (Aurora - Lawrenceburg - Greendale)

Surprized!

September, 2019 by yellowleaf

Nice trail, the small section I was able to ride today (thus 4 stars) - but sadly missing alerts that it's currently mostly closed due to roadwork!! (Thus only 4 stars).
