Twisted Oliver at Barren River Lake

brad burridge

Overview

Do not ride wet. Check trail status.
This twisty short-track (3.1 miles) 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 ampitheater, steps, concrete walkways, public restrooms, and fishing are all nice features of the trailhead.
Features: -none-
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 to much of the trail and most of the trail would be within ear shot.
Dogs: Off-leash

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 1/4 mi, 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.

Description

Please take us through it as if you're explaining the trail to a friend: describe the trail surface, what you’re likely to see along the way (views, flora/fauna, etc...), any notable trail junctions, etc. Descriptions should convey what makes a trail worth doing. We think folks will appreciate knowing what to expect along the way.

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.
