“This trail packs a lot of surprising scenery into a small space.”— Chris Chaney

There's a lot of potential at Life Adventure Center for more mountain biking as well.
The trail follows the creek, crossing a couple of times, before paralleling one of the Bluegrass Region's historic stone fences. After the fence, the trail begins switchbacking up the opposite side of the drainage before closing a second loop and starting the long climb back to the trailhead.
You could easily combine this ride with Capitol View Park for a full day, or hit it in the afternoon for a quick burn.
The mapped distance is 3.7 miles, but this is a lollipop loop and the ride is more like 6 miles.
