Mountain Biking Otter Creek

***   Add a review
#33 of 108 mountain bike trails in Kentucky
#3,304 in the world

There are a few trails in the park; Otter Creek, Valley Overlook and Red Cedar. Trail maps can be picked up at the park (see map link above for a copy). The Information Center (1.4 miles from the entrance, just past the Nature Center) is open all the time. The Nature Center and the Office should also have maps on hand. The trails allow you to make up your own loops, ask a local for recommended routes. The trail has some hills and technical sections with plenty of log crossings, roots and rocky sections.

The trail system is managed by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. It is open from Wed to Sun. It costs $10 a rider to ride. The two MTB trails are Otter Creek Trail and Valley Overlook Trail. KyMBA Louisville leads trail work every fourth Sunday at 2:00pm. Real time trail status can be found at
