“A twisting loop through the Twister Oliver Trail - Port Oliver Recreation Area.
— brad burridge
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. Check trail status.
This twisty, short track 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.
Need to Know
Head out of Bowling Green and follow Hwy 234 southeast out of town until it intersects with Hwy 1533, take 1533 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 ft, 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 is in progress, more to come.
