Adkisson Greenbelt Description

Adkinsson Greenbelt Park offers an extensive paved trail running throughout the city of Owensboro in Daviess County, Kentucky. It makes its way through many of the city's parks and to a few neighborhoods. It's a great place for outdoor recreation such as walking, running, and biking, but can also be used as a transportation route as it connects many areas of the town.

Parking at the Joe Ford Nature Center can be reached by heading west on Highway 60 (formerly known as the bypass) until it ends at Henderson Road/4th Street. Turn right. Then, take the first right on to Gradd Way. Parking will be on the right, a couple hundred yards down Gradd Way.

Adkisson Greenbelt Reviews

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.

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.
