The Paducah Greenway (simply, The Greenway to locals, and officially, the Clyde F. Boyles Greenway Trail) is a 4.5-mile non-motorized pathway that links Paducah’s neighborhoods, parks and natural areas. Three of the planned five phases of construction have been completed and there are plans to extend the trail along the Ohio River riverfront and through the Perkins Creek Nature Preserve.
The trail exists in two main segments. The first one runs from Noble Park around Bluegrass Downs, through Stuart Nelson Park and terminates at County Park Road. This 1.75-mile portion is surfaced with gravel, and offers a pleasant woodland ride.
The second segment also begins at Noble Park, but travels north along the top of the floodwall levee. There is a marked at-grade crossing at Cairo Road. The only other major road crossing is via a 52-ft lighted pedestrian underpass under North 8th Street/ US 45. Following this the trail reemerges onto the top of the levee and then continues east up to Campbell St, just north of the Paducah Expo Center.
There are distance markers all along the completed segments of greenway as well as trailside benches at intervals.
In 2019, a gravel/dirt extension was added to the existing trail and runs from Campbell Street, near the Schroeder Expo Center, to Schultz Park, near the Paducah riverfront.
Parking and access to the trail can be found at Stuart Nelson Park (175 S Nelson Park Rd); Noble Park (2801 Park Ave); and the Paducah Expo Center (1 Executive Blvd). The trailhead at Noble Park is next to the Skatepark.
