Mountain Biking The Flats

***   Add a review
#64 of 108 mountain bike trails in Kentucky
#8,698 in the world

about 3.5 miles of clay 4-wheeler trails, makes for a good evening ride. features a large area in the trail called "The Flats" that has 25-75ft drops that are very very steep and fast! trail climbs about 450ft above the parking lot to a radio tower, where many people turn around, but you have the option to continue across the ridge to another tower near Sunnybrook Lane. Look for huge speed decending with the occasional oppertunity for a 2-5ft drop. Alot of Fun for such a short trail!

    Ok the directions take you to a shopping center where I didn't see a trail. I assume they were talking about the dirt road down the road with the giant no trespassing sign on it that I rode down. It was kind of fun. I don't know might of missed something,
