ALERT: Turkey Run Park Trails Closed

12-17-15 TRAIL UPDATE: The Seaton Valley and Boone Bottoms Trails in Turkey Run Park have re-opened to visitors. Paw Paw and Chinkapin Trails remain closed due to muddy conditions. 

While entries of the Paw Paw soft trail are dry, portions within Turkey Run Forest take longer to dry out due to tree coverage and soil content. We appreciate your patience as our team allows the trail to properly dry out, preventing permanent damage.


Due to muddy conditions, soft trails in Turkey Run Park are temporarily closed to visitors. This closure includes Paw Paw, Chinkapin, Boone Bottoms, and Seaton Valley Trails. Paved trails, including the Louisville Loop, as well as Bullfrog Crossing and Sky Meadow trails near Boulder Pond, will remain open for visitors to enjoy. Turkey Run Park Trails

If you plan to visit The Parklands this week, please respect all posted closure signs, and use your judgement when embarking on a hike or ride along open soft trails in Beckley Creek and Pope Lick Parks. Your cooperation will help us keep our parks in world-class shape for years to come!

We will post updates here to inform visitors when soft trails and closed areas have re-opened. Thank you for your patience.
