The 1.1 mile Zoo Walkers' loop at the Louisville Zoo is a hard-surface walk through the animal exhibits that combines flat areas and hills with the sights and sounds of the zoo for a challenging twist on the traditional "weekend stroll." Directional signs keep walkers on track and provide special health tips along the way.
