Licking River Greenway and Trails is an ambitious Northern Kentucky effort to create an urban greenway from the mouth of the Licking River to the I-275 loop. The trails system seeks to connect neighborhoods and businesses on both sides of the river improving safety and increasing property values.

More Trails Open!

The trails beginning directly behind Holmes High School at the corner of Levassor and Eastern Ave. are officially opened and extended once again! Enjoy about a two mile hike north to 9th street (behind Randolph Park) and back! Parking is available in the east parking lot of Holmes High School (accessible from Eastern Ave). Additionally, make sure to utilize the paved trails which are accessible from Clayton-Meyer Park!

The Trails are coming to Wilder!

The City of Wilder has started construction on paved trails. This system will begin at the City of Wilder building and bring users to Frederick’s Landing. We are excited about this expansion and cannot wait to see people utilizing more of the LRGT!
