“This is a beautiful pedestrian-only trail adjacent to the Louisville Loop in Broad Run Park.”— Chris Young
The highest point is at the beginning of the trail, and it winds down around a beautiful gorge area. There are a few points where the trail crosses some limestone ledges that are fairly narrow compared to the trail. These can get a bit slick if the streams are running over them.
Overall, this is a very good trail and, like the whole Parklands system, is very convenient to Louisville.
