Mountain Biking Grapevine Lake A&b

****   Add a review
#60 of 101 mountain bike trails in Kentucky
#9458 in the world

From the gate entrance you will see trail B on your left then trail A just a tad futher on your right. Start trail A and follow trail and markers around to the boat ramp (at the end of gravel road). When you reach the boat ramp turn left up the hill and on your right begans trail B it will loop around and finish back at the gate. One note on trail B you will cross a gravel road and at one point you must take the road to the right and reenter the trail to the left at a cable gate near a main road. There are a few north shore style jumps on trail A and a few short steep climbs but other than that it's fast and fun. With recent trail work and moderant riding the trail is in very good condition, with some nice lake side views. More trail is being opened in coming months..

    Fun trail system. Red trail is the longest and most technical but a lot of fun. Blue trail is fast and fun. Yellow seems to be just a lot of work. Been riding the trails about once a month over the last year. Trails maintenance seems to be improving from the first time I rode them.

    Despite being rained on for a few days, this trail drained quite well. I think that when this trail dries a little more, the ride would be better. Tires couldnt quite bite and felt rear wheel come loose in the turns. My advice is that if it sticks, you can do tricks. If it slides, just ride.

    Nice flowy trails but need serious work on drainage. On the climbs you could tell the water drains straight down the trail. Not to much difficulty. Some roots but overall rides pretty smooth.

    Fun trail system that I'll be back to ride again. Good mix of down hill and inclines to climb. A few roots here and there, but the trail seemed well maintained.

    Just finished both a and b last week. Little overgrown with some rolling hills but a nice bike altogether. Be wary of the ticks. They are everywhere. Probably pulled off at least 50 bc of the overgrown grass.

    Cleaned up and in great condition. Fun trail with a few wooden jumps and some nice single track.

    In it's current state, it's rugged and overgrown. Has lots of potential though, but needs a major overhaul to be something more then a kids bmx woods trail. None of the ratings really fit, it's a mixture of the middle three.

    Trail A was a somewhat challenging course. A couple nice jumps at the start. The lake made for some good scenery. Due to the recent ice storm there were a couple of spots with large trees down on the track. Other then that the trail is is a clear ride. Trail B is much longer and more challenging but has some cool features . Overall it was a lot of fun.* Review edited 5/19/2009

    Trail A is fast and fun. It has a few climbs but nothing to hard. It has a few ramps @ the first part. You could see the storm damage, but it all cleaned up now.

    Trail B is a little harder. It has several difficult climbs right @ the beginning, but gets a little faster on the second half.
