#43 of 108 mountain bike trails in Kentucky
This trail is in no way affiliated with Sugarcamp Mountain Trails despite what the pictures suggest. Search for Sugarcamp Mountain Trails for info on those trails.
This is a gravel road with a few ups and downs and some nice views of the lake. It gets pretty isolated, so it is not recommended to ride this trail alone.

Jenny Wiley lodge
419 Jenny Wiley drive
Prestonsburg, ky 41653 is correct address for starting point
When you're in lodge parking lot just keep on black top rd that goes up hill by lodge, you will pass by lodge rental cabins then come to a gate after approx half mile or so, up and over and follow rd, turns to gravel in another half mile or so.. There are no turns just follow road you're there when you reach cabins by waters edge and shelter by lake. (Gd time for a dip).
Be cautious, there is a guide wire across rd just after you see 1st cabin and odd fellows sign it is noticeable, but just so you know it is there!! There is wide open area to left of cable to easily pass through, then one more hill and you're there!
Trail is approx 9.2 miles out and back to starting point from lodge (total ride) so 4.1 each way, it is a great ride, the terrain is gravel and in fairly good shape (rd is maintained) it is access rd for cabins owned by piarist mission, formerly odd fellows cabins!
Trail has 3 big climbs, and the best part is 3 fairly fast downhills then a mixture of flow here and there!
Moving time for me averages around 1.3 hours I usually give myself 2 hours if I plan on stopping for rest!
It's a great ride, trees provide plenty of shade so it's a great summer ride!
After ride Deweys bar at Jenny Wiley lodge is a great place for gd food and ice cold draft!!!
