South Elkhorn Trail Description

The South Elkhorn Trail is a short community path in the southern reaches of Lexington, Kentucky. The rail-with-trail skirts the edge of the new housing developments centered on Newbury Way and Lochdale Terrace. Because the active railroad is perched on a hill above the path, trail users can occasionally catch glimpses of Norfolk Southern freight trains through the trees.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the South Elkhorn Trail can be found along neighborhood streets in southern Lexington.

South Elkhorn Trail

This trail appears to be a good resource for the community. It provides (1) a safe place for children to ride their bikes separated from automobile traffic, (2) a place for those in the neighborhood to walk their dogs, and (3) a place for a leisurely stroll. It's too short for adult cycling or serious runners. If I lived in the neighborhood, I might use it often, but it is not something that anyone would travel a great distance to use. There is no public parking or trailhead. There are no magnificent views, unless you enjoy looking at power lines.
