Cherokee Park, located near the Crescent Hill and Highlands area, is one of Louisville, KY’s most beloved parks. Covering over 375 acres, any lover of the outdoors can easily find something of interest. Runners, cyclists, golfers, and families can all experience Cherokee Park in a unique way. From tree covered trails to wide open green spaces, this is your go-to spot to get lost in some of Louisville’s natural beauty.

Paved bike and pedestrian trail on the roadway surrounding by trees in Cherokee Park.

One of the most popular aspects of Cherokee Park is all of the fantastic paved trails. The Scenic Loop is over 2 miles of paved roadways that provide walkers and bicyclists with a smooth option for exercise. The Scenic Loop allows for one-way vehicle traffic while also offering a second lane designated for bicycle and pedestrian traffic. This is the perfect place for serious cyclists who would like to avoid the dangers of biking along with city roadway traffic. It’s equally ideal for foot traffic; you will find many people walking with strollers and pets. Because the designated pathway is wide, it’s a great place to exercise with a group of people. Mature tree coverage allows for quite a bit of shade while still letting the summer’s welcoming sunlight through. It is really just about as peaceful as a large paved roadway can ever get!

Planning to sell your home near Cherokee Park? It might be worth more than you think!

Along with tons of paved walking options, Cherokee Park is home to extensive wooded trails as well. Hiking trails provide a completely different exercise option for those feeling a little more adventurous. There is even a designated mountain biking trail for those interested in escaping into nature for a while. As some walkers prefer an open and easily accessible paved pathway, there are equally as many people who could take advantage of the secluded nature trails. This park boasts the best of both worlds!
