Trails

Brownsboro Alliance has been working for 15 years to renew and reconnect the economy, environment, and people of Brownsboro into a sustainable, innovative, rural community.  We have the opportunity to revive the Brownsboro community by connecting its rural charm with our urban lives through the Brownsboro Alliance Trail System (BATA).  Through BATA and its partnership with landowners, a natural trail system has been established for private, responsible membership.

A Brief History of the Brownsboro Alliance Trail System

Throughout Brownsboro, existing trails and roadbeds have long been used informally by landowners and their guests.  In 2013, BA proposed to landowners to simply connect this natural trail system through the scenic farms of Brownsboro for private and responsible membership for hiking and/or horseback riding.  We held a preliminary information meeting with landowners and others instrumental in developing the trail.  If you were unable to attend, the presentation that was discussed is available online.

The proposal was accepted and Phase I opened in the fall of 2014, having secured landowner license agreements for trail use for the first 7 miles.  Foxhollow Farm serves as the first trailhead, where members can park their cars and horse trailers to access the trail.  In 2015, BATA partnered with the University of Louisville to access a new section of trail near the Moore Observatory, doubling the length of the trail.  Additional sections of the trail are planned and will be implemented as agreements and monies for trail building and maintenance become available.
