Hopkinsville Rail Trail Description

Hopkinsville Rail Trail, sometimes referred to as the Pennyrile Rail Trail, will one day be more than 7 miles long along the former Fort Campbell railroad spur once used by the U.S. Army.

Currently, about 3 miles of the trail are complete along Hopkinsville’s west side from North Drive to Pardue Lane. Along the way, the trail offers connections to many business, neighborhoods, and Westside Park. Trail-goers can easily get from the trail to the park by crossing a 130-foot pedestrian bridge spanning the Little River; the park offers a playground, picnic tables, and grills.

The Pennyrile Rail Trail Foundation has been pursuing the rail-trail for more than two decades. The trail’s first phase opened in September 2014. Future phases will continue the trail farther south to Tie Breaker Park (on Eagle Way) and Lovers Lane.

Parking and Trail Access

A trailhead is available at the trail’s northern end on North Drive. The trail also connects to Westside Park (533 W. 9th Street).
