Although not that convenient for those on the south side of town, it is worth the drive. This is a really great place for walking, jogging or running, and, at least when I was there was not at all crowded.

This trail was great for a bike ride, we started across from the horse park and really enjoyed the scenery. I would definitely recommend this if you are visiting the area and looking for a great biking/walking/jogging trail. It's well worth doing.

If you looking for a place to walk and think, this is it. This place offers miles of paved walking or biking path, with beautiful scenery, and with fall trees showing multiple color, is a must.

We began our walk at the Ironworks entrance near Kentucky Horsepark. This is paved trail with ample room for bikers, runners, and walkers. Great way to enjoy the outdoors. This is a north south trail, not a loop, so if time or distance is a concern you will want to determine what your 1/2 way point is going to be.... More

We used to only come here to bike. The hilly trail helped us gain strength and the scenery was an extra bonus. However, we have recently discovered that we can park our car right by the dog park. There is a huge dog park right off the trail. We have just been parking and then taking nice long walks with... More

Safe, well-maintained, and very picturesque. Plenty of room to ride and ground to cover. Horses grazing and crops growing really make the scenery.

We enjoy occasionally riding our bikes on this trail. It is quiet, scenic, and nicely maintained. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Exceptional morning walk on this easy, paved path that starts across from the Horse Park campground entrance, meanders through beautiful (mostly flat) farm country, and ends in the downtown area. A perfect way to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Bluegrass.
