Discovery Trail

Home / Discovery Trail

Discovery Trail is newly constructed two-mile-long bike, pedestrian and ADA accessible trail that merges with the Ohio River Greenway.  Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb created the Next Level Trails program which helped the Town fund the trail. The Town of Clarksville was among those recipients, receiving a grant for $840,800 for the Discovery trail development.  The Town of Clarksville received an additional grant from the Southern Indiana Tourism Bureau.  The rest of the project will be funded by the Clarksville Redevelopment Commission.


The new trail consists of  a 1.9 mile asphalt, multi-use trail along a former CSX rail corridor southwest from Applegate Lane to Silver Creek, where the trail merges with the Ohio River Greenway. The Discovery Trail connects to the Levee Trail, Heritage Trail, and Lewis and Clark Trail, as well as several nearby schools, neighborhoods, and commercial corridors. The project includes a new trailhead at Eastern Boulevard near the Duke Energy property, as well as two pedestrian trailheads in Ray Lawrence Park and Beechwood Park.
