“This trail offers a mix of urban, flood wall, and wooded trail.”— Kevin Giltner
Family Friendly This is a wide trail, with very little elevation change and caution point where the trail crosses KY 305 which is a very busy road, but extremely well marked.
From the beginning at the far west end of the trail, it is crushed limestone through wooded and meadow lands. At Noble Park, the trail changes to concrete on top of the flood wall and heads toward the Ohio River. There is a short tunnel taking the trail under US 45. Shortly after tunnel are benches for viewing the Irvin Cobb Bridge over the Ohio.
The trail continues on top of the flood wall to downtown Paducah. The marked trail ends near the convention center parking lot. You can continue on city sidewalks to the farmers' market, River Front Park, and downtown Broadway with shops, restaurants, historic Market House, the Carson Center, and Hooper's Outdoor Center. Paducah is adding more miles to this trail every few years.
