Trail Description
About this trail
I did not really care for Energy Lake, which is gravel roads mostly. Jenny Ridge is a lot of fun. Some really great singletrack which is technical, and you can't beat the view. Most of the trail (which is about 12 miles) runs along the North/South trail, which is also a hiking trail. Jenny Ridge is NOT closed during hunting season (despite what I said before).

Review: A very nice trail. Rode most of the North South Trail and back. Not too technical but was demanding and fun. Lots of creek crossings and and a some sections were a bit muddy when I rode it. In April. Was fun to ride and worth the trip. Drove down from Chicago. Canal loop was a great first day and put on the mileage on NS the second. Wood n Wave is the Local LBS. Great people there

Review: This is what I know as the North/South trail, as ACE has said, they have opened up the whole 31 miles of trail. I like this trail, but the attached Canal Loop trail is better in my opinion. In September they allow dual-sport dirtbikes to ride the North/South trail, which is an asset in my opinion. The trails seem really groomed after they get through (this trail does not see the use that the Canal Loop does, and needs a little grooming every now and then in my opinion). In the fall there is usually a MTB race that covers most of the distance of the North/South trail which is a step up from racing 5 to 10 laps of a 2 mile loop if you know where I`m coming from. All in all, a pretty cool trail.

Review: I rode Jenny Ridge and really enjoyed it. I think it is one of the better trails in that part of the country. although not an epic trail, there are some truly great sections of the trail that will increase your risk of getting bugs stuck in your grill from smiling so wide. I highly recommend this ride to anyone within a few hours drive.

Review: New information on this trail: opened in 1999 from Golden Pond to North Welcome Station, 31 miles of nearly all singletrack. New area code for LBL is 270 and web site is Trail is rolling singletrack with moderate, but long climbs, and great views. Use extreme care during gun hunts in late November.

Review: This is some of the sweetest riding I've been on around here. Definately the Tsali of Kentucky! The canal loop trail has something for everyone...speed..technical sections...hills...scenery...just a great, recommended ride. Trailhead starts across from the North welcome station and goes counterclockwise. The toughest climbs are after the microwave tower about 3/4 of the way in. Haven't tried all of the North/South trail yet so can't review it but there's supposedly 31 miles of bike trail there.

Review: two great rides here, if you start at the golden pond visitor center and ride out the driveway make a right go under the bridge then look to the left and you will see the trail, this trail goes all the way to the north welcome station and is a great mix of hills, twisty singletrack. the second ride is at the north welcome station, park and cross over the road to the woods were the trail starts. follow the canal loop markings, the first half is flat and fast then it gets semi hilly.
