Take an accessible hike on one of these Louisville trails

These are three of our favorite wheelchair-friendly trails.

The outdoors are for everybody — and there are plenty of hikes in our area that are friendly to wheelchairs, strollers, and other mobility aids.

Here are three of our picks:

Anchorage Trail, Downtown Anchorage, 1500 Evergreen Rd.
This 10-ft wide paved path begins with a herringbone brick walk before it winds through a park-like setting. It travels past open fields and Willow Lake + ends under a light tree canopy.

Iroquois Park Overlook, Iroquois Park, 521 New Cut Rd.
Get sweeping views of downtown LOU at the summit of this paved route, which is only open to vehicular traffic one weekend a month.

Scenic Loop Trail, 745 Cochran Hill Rd.
Enjoy trees and open meadows in this Frederick Law Olmsted-designed park in the Highlands. The paved 2.3-mile loop is relatively flat with an average grade of 5%.
