Louisville Loop Trail


One of the most exciting elements of the City of Parks initiative is the plan to complete a paved Louisville Loop trail of more than 100 miles around the community. In addition to connecting Louisville’s diverse parks and neighborhoods, this path includes planned connections to Southern Indiana and surrounding Kentucky counties, offering significant new opportunities for recreation and alternative transportation.

The Ohio River Levee Trail and the RiverWalk are now connected, and the loop is approximately 25% complete. This will allow a bicyclist or pedestrian to travel nearly 25 miles from downtown to Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing along paved multi-use paths.
