Family Friendly This is a great place for families because anyone can hike it or ride it, and the parking lot at the trailhead is close and most of the trail is within ear shot.

Do not ride wet trails. Check trail status.

Overview

This is a great place for families because anyone can hike it or ride it, and the parking lot at the trailhead is close and most of the trails are within ear shot.

Description

To access the trailhead, head out of Bowling Green and follow Hwy 234 southeast out of town until it intersects with Hwy 1533 and take 1533 heading east. At Port Oliver, you'll see The Landing (4171 Barren River Dam Road, Scottsville, KY). Stop in for some refreshments!

Take a left on Barren River Dam Road, then in about 100 feet, turn right into the Port Oliver boat ramp area. Drive down the hill about 0.25 miles, then turn right on the paved road into the parking lot. There is a gravel parking lot on the right near the amphitheater where the trailhead is.

This twisty series of short tracks is not only fun with climbs and descents but has many cool wood features such as berms, bridges, skinnies, tables, and an advanced ladder! Go get Twisted! The amphitheater, steps, concrete walkways, public restrooms, and fishing are all nice features of the trail system, too.

This loop heads clockwise through the trails, starting with the first half of the Pine Hill Loop, then the Lake Loop, and finishing with the second half of the Pine Hill Loop.

History & Background

Twisted Oliver Trail is a SW KyMBA built trail in partnership with USACE BRL and is located at Port Oliver Recreational Area on Barren River Lake.
