Explore urban and rural landscapes as you hike or bike along this 1.08-mile trail connecting to the City of Louisville’s Metzger Park. The Nickel Plate Trail has a crushed limestone surface and extends from Swallen Ave to the intersection of Pinevale Ave. and McKimm Ave. It then connects with the City of Louisville’s paved asphalt trail heading north around Metzger Park to Rt. 44.
You’ll pass through a thriving wetland where you may see boneset, joe-pye weed, and skunk cabbage plants as well as apple, hickory, maple, sassafras, and swamp white oak trees.
Hit the trail with your pet! Just remember that dogs must be leashed at all times, and owners must dispose of pet waste properly.
The Nickel Plate Trail has been adopted by the Rotary Club of Louisville, the club sponsors cleanup projects along the trail throughout the year.
