Trail Description
About this trail
Capitol View Park is a 150 acre park in Frankfort with softball fields, soccer fields, picnic areas and a basketball court. Surrounding these areas are a great network of trails for the beginner and experienced rider. The trails consist of mostly tight twisty singletrack, a few creek crossings, a fireroad, one downhill section, two whoop-de-do sinkholes and some jumps. The trails are mostly hardpack, with some small rock, gravel and gra**ections. Trail conditions are usually good but rain can make riding slippery for a few days.

Review: First time here! Beginner/intermediate flowy trails, scenery single tracks for most of the ride. The only downside they're not well mark. Overall good trail system!!

Review: I wouldn't say this is a beginner trail. It has beginner elements but also intermediate. Having not been here before and not knowing how long this place has been around I was expecting smooth (boring) flow trail you find everywhere else these days. Trails were actual trails with trail features like rocky sections, trees, roots, and well placed bridges to help get over extremely large downed tree, making it a fun element instead of just cutting the tree out. There were some short steep climbs too. Really refreshing to ride here. Well done to the trail builders and those maintaining it for keeping it natural.

Review: Good trail, I rode it after the rain so it was slippery in quite a few spots. Fun trail, easy to get crossed up but they all loop around the park so your never too far away from where you started.

Review: All that, and a bag of chips. As easy or as challenging as you want to make it. Great flow. Ride for hours and never run out of fresh obstacles or new experiences. Awesome views of water, flora and wildlife. It must be maintained hourly. It's always perfect. ...and a bag of chips!

Review: Nice little trail that can be about as technical as you want it to be. Lots of steep rooty climbs, sharp turns, and some reasonable downhill. Several places I wanted to stop and practice a few techniques on the sinkholes and log crossings. Lots of fun, give it a go if you're in the area.

Review: I really liked this trail. Easy to ride and has a nice flow. Definitely worth driving from Lexington or Louisville. Be prepared to see deer hanging out in the woods. I've ridden this trail at least 10 times and it never gets old. Must go!

Review: This is the best spot near Lexington 2nd would be Skullbusters. CVP is filled w/ fun things. No insane downhill segments but you'll find a ditch or two that remind me of the big gulp. The place has been vastly improved according to friends so if you're looking for a good ride hit this place up cause it flows & has great views....
