Overview

Description

From Bald Knob-Hill Cemetery Road, the Kentucky Trail descends steeply on an old roadbed. Because this trail sees so little use, it's likely to be slightly overgrown or completely leaf covered. Beware of cobbles hiding beneath a carpet of leaves.

At the bottom of the hill, the trail begins paralleling the river. The tread is again on an old road bed with few major inclines. The only issue along this stretch stems from the lack of use and maintenance. The lack of use makes for a not-so-well-beaten trail surface. The lack of maintenance means that you can expect to encounter a LOT of deadfall.

Eventually, the trail will transition to a singletrack corridor that has a lot of potential. Again, downed trees seem to be the only major deterring factor here.

The only maintenance that this trail sees comes from a few (very dedicated) local mountain bike advocates. That said, there's only so much they can do to keep the corridor clear. This trail needs use!
