Trails for All

Evansville is a city full of hiking, biking, walking, and running trails, both inside and outside city limits. In recent years, the focus when creating and upgrading these paths has been making them accessible for all residents.

The Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage is a 6.75-mile path made up of 10 distinct corridors and landmarks which meet ADA guidelines for handicap accessibility.

One end begins in Downtown with the Riverfront Corridor. Starting at Sunrise Park, the 1.5-mile trail includes views of the Evansville Museum of Art, History and Science, the Evansville Pagoda, Convention and Visitor Bureau, and more.

The next 3.5 miles of the Greenway including the Joan Marchand Bridge Overlook make up the Industrial Corridor. Opened on Oct. 18, 2010, this portion runs west to the Mead Johnson Trailhead near the Shirley James Gateway Plaza and sculpture.

The Mid Levee Corridor completes the path with 1.7 miles of trail following Pigeon Creek Levee to Heidelbach Canoe Launch. The entire Greenway is a paved, shared-use urban trail, with the exception of the wooden Marchand Bridge.

For more information on parking and restrooms along the Greenway and a full list of trails and accessibility in Evansville visit the Evansville Trails Coalition.
