Muhlenberg County Rail-Trail

Trail is a Jewel in west central Kentucky

September, 2017 by cfswenty

My wife and I rode the trail up and back from Greenville to Central City on September 9, 2017. Trail head parking in both Greenville and Central City is paved, convenient, and safe. Trail is paved and about 8-10 feet wide. Most of the trail is flat or gradual slopes, except a short steep hill near Central City. Vegetation along the sides of the trail was mowed and well kept. Old bridges near the wetlands do not have guard rails but trail is wide across the bridges. Lots of benches along the way. There are a few road crossings near Greenville but not hazardous. The trail is off the interstate and parkway corridors. It is not long but is a hidden gem.

White Plains Trail

Great short trail

May, 2017 by tsugakentucky

Well kept short trail (2 miles). Most of it goes through woods with agricultural fields outside. Very quiet. Much used for exercise. There are not many designated trails in this area.

Great local and public trail

December, 2016 by bronson23_vincent

I'm in the military and have actually taken the Army Physical Fitness Test on this trail. We run 2 miles for record so they have a white posted line past Powderly to start from and will run to where the trail starts in Greenville across from Clarks Appliance Center. Soldiers like to take the running part of the PT Test there because instead of the normal 8 laps in a circle rubbing elbows with 60 other Soldiers it's a 1 way start to end run and halfway, 1 mile mark, you can see the finish line and mentally makes you more confident and run harder and Soldiers really improve their time. Also I have ridden the the trail several times on bicycle along with my children and have never had any trouble. We always ride up and back and stop at the swamp area to go up on the deck and view the wildlife. It is maintained well and has a lot of neat interesting features along the way. It is truly great having this in our local community and we are very fortunate.

practical, but frustrating

November, 2016 by mewjones

I love the idea of this trail in that it connects different areas of the city, but it is very difficult to follow. Signage is minimal and there were numerous points at which I took wrong turns or almost completely gave up on it because it wasn't clear where the trail went at an intersection. The sections were the trail is just a double wide sidewalk are definitely the worst part. I rode close to the entire trail on an unseasonably warm veterans day Friday and couldn't believe how few people were on the trail. In 12.2 miles I saw only two other people on bicycles and a handful of walkers/runners. The four star rating is due to the usefulness of the trail for people who live there. If you are looking for a great ride, it gets less stars. And it's pretty lame that it's closed dusk to dawn.

lots of twists and turns. unfortunately, the turns are rarely marked, so take your smart phone with google maps on it; i needed it the whole time. the bicycling option on google maps chose some relatively safe bike routes through the downtown, so i was largely able to return that way. all-blacktop surface is largely good, but even the newer sections have tree roots poking through more often than expected. not crowded at all on a crisp fall saturday in late october, and the few folks that i did encounter were rather friendly.

perfect trail for all ages

September, 2016 by frantaylor1963

Due to the mostly flat land in this area this is a well kept trail for everyone. Bobbing in and put youll have a chance to see everything from from farm living to city life. This trail also has drinking fountains,restrooms and rest areas.
Cant say enough of how well kept with all the annuities.

Great town

April, 2016 by nicholas.fulkerson

A wonderful place to walk with your family.. We walk there almost every night the dogs really enjoy it also...

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

We Want More!

Well I have walked and biked what is laid out several times. Am really looking forward to trail extending, especially toward Angel Mounds and Newburgh. Only negative so far is when the water is up and can't go under the overpasses.
One nice plus is kicking off at Franklin Street and hitting PG cafe and Tinman or other restaurants the other way on street. The library is a good potty break if you are not stopping to eat. More places for pit-stops would definitely be a plus.

Great trail-looks newly improved!

December, 2014 by machar

We took our dogs to walk the trail from southern trailhead in Greenville to just past Powderly, maybe 2 miles. The parking area is right next to US62 just as you come into Greenville from the northeast. When you see the green caboose and covered bridge the parking is the next right. This section is lighted with many benches available to rest. It looked like the trail had recently been widened (previous comment said it was narrow) to about 10 feet and repaved. Very level, easy walking. There are no facilities on the trail, but many fast food places across the highway in this section. It does go through an area of older, run down homes, but it was very open and we felt safe walking there. If you take your dogs on this trail please be sure to have them leashed securely as there is lots of open farmland and a busy highway they could get lost in. Hope to be able to go the whole 6 miles on our bikes sometime and see the rest of the trail!

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

Needs extension!

July, 2014 by kansaskraze

This trail is a great trail for bikers, it goes from the Hiedelbach canoe launch to Sunset Park along the riverside. Needs the planned extension to Angel Mounds State Historic Site to connect with the Newburgh Rivertown Trail.

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

Great Urban Trail!

July, 2014 by elizabethcorrell

Road the entire completed length of this wonderful trail on June 30, 2014. (6.3 miles/so 12.6 miles roundtrip) They plan to eventually make a complete circle around the city. It is paved the whole length, extremely well maintained, and very enjoyable to ride on. There are a few gradual inclines and declines but nothing extreme. Be aware that this path is in full sun at all times so on a sunny day you will have NO SHADE. I parked at the beginning at Sunset Park downtown and road this part between the river and downtown, through the industrial corridor, past some neighborhoods, and finally through a mostly green section past Garvin Park where it ends at the Middle Levee Corridor sign. The only restrooms available along the trail are at the Evansville tourist center Pagoda building towards the Sunset Park start and in a building hidden from view by trees at Garvin Park (when traveling north,instead of making the left turn at Garvin Park, leave the bicycle path and go straight ahead on the park road, the restroom building is not far on the left) If you follow the trail downtown and end up at the Marchand Bridge dead end, don't worry, you only need to back track a little to where the trail crosses the railroad tracks. It looks like the trail is blocked by a fence but when you get closer you will see that they just made an odd little turn around to go through with your bike so you will pay close attention as you cross the tracks since they are still in use. I recommend that you carry plenty of water. I also had a sack lunch I ate at the top level of the pagoda (They have a bicycle rack available to lock your bike up) upon my return towards Sunset Park. There is a shaded bench up there that looks out over the Ohio river toward downtown Evansville. A great view and wonderful end to an enjoyable journey.
