Trail Way & Greenway Committee

The City of Greensburg is currently working toward the Trail Town certification offered by the state of Kentucky's Office of Adventure Tourism.

"A Trail Town is a destination along a long-distance trail or adjacent to an extensive trail system. Whether the trail is a hiking trail, water trail or rail trail, users can venture from the path to explore the unique scenery, commerce and heritage that each trail town has to offer. It is a safe place where both residents of the town and trail users can walk or drive to find the goods and services they need."

Greensburg is situated on the Green River.  Several access ramps are available within the city, but also throughout Green County.  The Green River Paddle Trail is located in the middle of Greensburg's downtown Historic District and central Business District offering a unique opportunity to direct river traffic into the community, while connecting many communities along the river to the City of Greensburg. 

Basic Elements of a Trail Town strategy:

  • Enticing trail users to take detours off the trail and into your town via a connector trail.
  • Welcoming trail users to your town by providing information about the community readily available on the trail.
  • Making a substantial path between your town and the main trail.
  • Educating local businesses on the economic benefits of meeting trail tourists’ needs.
  • Recruiting new businesses or expanding existing ones to fill gaps in the goods or services that trail users need.
  • Promoting the trail-friendly character of the town.
  • Working with neighboring communities to promote the entire trail corridor as a tourist destination
