The Lake Barkley Bridge connecting Canton to the Land between the Lakes National Recreation Area was opened in Fall 2019. The bridge features four traffic lanes and a 10-foot wide, protected bike-ped path alongside the eastbound lanes of US-68/ SR-80. The trail gives non-motorized users a safe way to get across the bridge. Trail users can do what the drivers can't, however, which is slow down and really enjoy the view of Lake Barkley from the bridge's vantage point.
The new bridge echoes the Eggners Ferry Bridge, west of this, with its basket arches, shared use path and LED lighting at night. Cyclists and pedestrians can connect to the two bridges via the gravel trails in the Land between the Lakes Rec Area.
Parking for the trail can be found at the at the east end of the bridge, in Canton. The parking lot is at the intersection of Canton Lane and Arrowhead Trail (address is 451 Canton Lane Canton, KY.)
