Trail Towns

Bluegrass, Horses,

and History

Thousands of miles of trails and waterways criss-cross Kentucky, offering endless opportunities for long-distance adventures and day trips alike. Along these trails, numerous communities have been designated as Kentucky Trail Towns – places where you can find supplies and guides, lodging, a hearty meal and a friendly hello during your travels.

Elizabethtown

South of bustling Louisville, the city of Elizabethtown – known by the locals as “E-town” – offers plenty of in-town amenities and attractions. But it’s also known for its easy access to vast networks of hiking, biking and paddling trails along Buffalo Lake, Freeman Lake, the Elizabethtown Greenspace and several parks. After your day of play, head into town to toast your adventures over a craft beer at Flywheel Brewing.
