Walks & Trails

Greenway Trail bridge

Walk the Greenway Trail

Paducah has 4.6 miles of Greenway Trail linking downtown to County Park Road running through Bob Noble Park and Stuart Nelson Park and adjacent to the Ohio River Boat Launch.  Much of the trail is concrete and follows the top of the floodwall levee.  The 1.75 mile stretch between County Park Road and Bob Noble Park is gravel and surrounded by woods.  The best places to park and access the trail are at Stuart Nelson Park, Bob Noble Park, or the Convention Center parking lot (trail is just north of the Paducah Expo Center).

The bridge in the picture is a beautiful backdrop for photos.  Access the bridge at the back of Stuart Nelson Park next to the disc golf course.  Head right on the trail toward Noble Park.  The bridge is less than a quarter mile walk.
