Description:

Licking River Greenway and Trails (LRGT) is an ambitious, multi-phase project to build an interconnected urban trail through the Licking River corridor, connecting the cities of Covington, Taylor Mill, Wilder and Newport, Kentucky. In its completion the multi-purpose trail system will span 12-14 miles.

Trail access can be found behind Holmes High School at the corner of Levassor and Eastern Ave. Additional locations to access the trail include the dead end of E. 16th Street, Clayton-Meyer Park and behind Randolph Park. Covington's trail includes 1.5 miles of nature trail, .75 miles of paved trails, and approximately 2.5 miles of trail utilizing sidewalk and road infrastructure.

The Parks & Recreation Department, in partnership with Skyward NKY and other partners, is currently working on expanding the Licking River Greenway and Trails system. 

A series of 17 murals are featured along the LRGT gatewells (structures built into the river side of the levee to regulate water flow), created through a partnership between ArtWorks and SkywardNKY. Learn more about the murals here.
