Barren River Lake State Resort Park

Could be a great trail, they need to re-pave about 2/3rds of the trail. Really bumpy with some of the ruts 2 to 3 + inches high. It has good shade and good uphill.

The first 2/3 are down hill which is nice but as the previous person stated the trails are littered with tree ruts that have raised the pavement 2 to 3+ inches in some spots the rest of the trail is a nice little workout

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.

September 23, 2021 trail still truncated by construction

September, 2021 by bluegrasslass

We parked in the public lot by the muraled flood wall but could only ride part of the trail to the west to where construction blocked us from continuing. The Detour sign led us to busy 45, with no indication of where the detour led. 45 has no shoulder or sidewalks. We missed half of the trail. Park at the west end, in Noble Park and ride east.

Prestonsburg Passage Rail Trail

Number 1 in the Bluegrass

September, 2021 by kcatron

I’ve been on just about all of the “Rail to Trails” in Ky. and this is head and shoulders above the rest. Cleanest trail, cleanest restrooms, well maintained, just an absolute gem. Thank you Prestonsburg and Floyd Co..

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.

Prestonsburg Passage Rail Trail

prestonsburg passage trail

September, 2021 by elizadams

This trail is 8.5 miles asphalt. Beautiful area. Several wooden bridges and school bus cover . In the summer there is lots of shade. There are several sheds, picnic tables , bike racks, and port-a potties. Also water access in 3 locations. The trail is flat no hills or incline … we very much enjoy this trail and ride it often - we live near by.

Adkisson Greenbelt

Sunny trail

September, 2021 by jpetho59

Went on this trail one sunny afternoon for two miles and found no shade. We just drove 30 miles south to Greenville and found a great paved 6 mile, shaded trail.

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

Dawkins Line Rail Trail

Nice trail

July, 2021 by jwyrick550

We went in at Jenny Creek and rode to a little pass Gun Creek tunnel. The path had some fresh limestone down that was hard to ride through at spots. We all have hybrid bikes and were able to handle the path well for the most part. You do go gradually uphill for a few miles and then down hill is nice, its pretty much a straight line. Half sun/half shade. About 6 miles in a dog joined us that we could not shake. She stayed on the side, and didn't get in our way riding, I'm sure we were not her first escort. She was the best part of the trail, her tag said owners name but not hers and turns out her name was Marly, she's brown hound dog mix. All six of us said she was the best part of the trip, she hung with us like a champ. She even posed with our group picture in front of the tunnel which I sent to the owner so they knew where she was. We found out she is known to join bikers and you won't be able to shake her. On the way back we stopped at the Griffith Farmer's Market (well worth the stop) that is where we learned of her name and they held her for us and called the owner. If you are ever by this path, it is worth it, hopefully you'll see Marly. We ended up doing 13 one way (26 total) Marly was with us for about 10-12 of them. Recommended path.
