Pennyrile Parkway

  • Western Waterlands
71 miles

The Pennyrile area is rich in cultural history and surrounded by beautiful Western Kentucky landscapes.

Named for the Pennyrile region of Kentucky, this roadway originally traveled from Henderson to Hopkinsville before sections were re-designated Interstate 69. The parkway travels by Hopkinsville, the point of greatest eclipse during the 2017 Great American Eclipse, and past sites designated by the National Trail of Tears.
