Mountain Biking Eagle Scout Trail

****   Add a review
#32 of 107 mountain bike trails in Kentucky
#2,945 in the world

Smooth well groomed beginners and intermediate trails with an intergraded advanced trail. Great parking and a camp ground right on the lake, about 10-15 minutes outside of the town of Somerset.

    This trail system has so much potential. It was well built but they've failed to maintain it. Needs some drains and keeping them clear, trails overall are not in good shape with many trees down and bridges knocked out. This is a park, not backcountry. They did a good job with signage at intersections but there's no cohesion without maps-knowing where you are and how they connect. You'll pop out on a road intersection and not know where to go.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. Bearing in mind I am brand new to the sport, I would say the beginner trail is excellent for those wanting to get a feel for their equipment and abilities. It is a beautiful trail to ride, plenty of features to tackle as well as rest areas. The beginner trail I would say is mostly a flowing type trail. There are plenty of ups and downs as well as long relatively flat areas.

    This is getting to be the my favorite place to ride and is becoming the best frail system in central Kentucky. Has some thing for everyone nice climbs, sweet downhills and just added a flow jump trail!! To get to flow jump trail ride back out from the parking lot to the campground general store. Stay to the right of the garage and u will see a trail marked bushwacker. Climb up bushwacker mostly all up hill. It comes out at gravel lot at the top. Ride straight across to the wide grass road and keep going you will run straight in to highroller. Drop your seat post and get set for berms, table tops, hipjumps and stepups!!! It drops out in the camp ground stay left and ride the pavement back to the general store.

    Very scenic and fun trail system. We rode with lots of leaves covering the trails but there were no surprises with what we were rolling over. Our group thoroughly enjoyed all the trails west of the suspension bridge. Once you cross over the bridge it was more trail blazing than trail riding. Definitely could tell not much bike traffic on that side of the trail system. Of all the trails we rode, the High Line and Low Line trails were our favorite. Good climb up the high line trail with a rewarding fast descent down the Low Line. Nice little jumps along the way made for lots of laughs and smiles! The wall ride was pretty fun too! Looking forward to going back and riding again.

    Trail is fast and flowy with moderate elevation gain. Head to top for a screaming flowy downhill with rollable tabletops. One wood feature built for a high bank turn. Great trail, advanced riders try multidirection and laps.
