Legacy Trail

Lexington has many miles of trails which offer a great way to lead a healthier and more active lifestyle. Whether you enjoy hiking, walking, running or biking, these trails allow individuals the opportunity to rejuvenate and maintain ones mind and body all while having fun. Take a trip to one of our nature parks and enjoy bird-watching, star gazing or hiking with your family. Visit one of the trails located in your neighborhood and walk your dog, in-line skate with your children or ride a bike. We encourage you to get out and enjoy the beauty of your local parks and trail system.

There are several types of trails:

A SHARED USE TRAIL is paved and designed for activities such as running and walking as well as higher speed activities like bicycling and skating. They are 10 to 12 feet wide.

A WALKING TRAIL is paved and is at least 8 feet wide. For everyone’s safety, bicycling and skating at greater than a fast walking speed is not allowed on walking trails.

PATHS are narrower than 8 feet and may include sidewalks, gravel paths and grass paths.

HIKING TRAILS are generally single person width, natural surface and for pedestrians only. Hiking trails may range from easy (level grades and shorter distances) to difficult (steep grades and/or longer distances).

It is recommended that you select hiking trails appropriate for your level of physical ability.
