I just love this trail. Each time we stay at the Embassy Suites near campus I take a run on this trail. The farm fields are beautiful, and the trail is very nicely maintained.

Perfect trail for biking. It is mainly flat, so it is an easy ride. It's about 20 miles round trip. It's a scenic route--it goes from urban to horse country. Beautiful!

This is a great feature for a town the size of Lexington, and reasonably accessible once you know the starting point, which was not clear on Google maps and not easy for me to find, leaving from West 6th Brewery by bike. More signage to...More

The trail is really nice and well maintained. There are a lot of bikers on the trail at any given time so if you are on foot just be on the lookout so as not to be startled when they come up behind you. It's...More

Sorry, I'm not sure but the trail is so long, so I think that there's a bike rental shop

I only used it twice, but from my recollection, if you are thinking three abreast, I don't think so. Also, toddlers are short enough you are probably not holding hands. On any bike path, you want to hold a toddler's hand... More
