    This is more of an extension of Cherokee Park than a stand alone trail. This is a fun addtional 2 miles to add to the loop, all singletrack, few techy spots but easy overall. I hear they cut down all the honeysuckle...which is sad. I understand it is an evasive species but it gave a feeling being in a jungle with minimal exposure. If you ride here, go ahead and ride the rest of Cherokee Park.

    Good trail, very rocky and has lots of roots in spots. Great for a quick workout in the city.

    Mainly easy singletrack, a few difficult uphill portions and log build-ins but the majority should be a piece of cake. Fav trail goes around the golf course. Good relaxing ride.

    A friend and I rode this last night and found a few areas new to us that were fun. In particular the trail starting in Seneca by the tennis courts west of the Seneca Running Track goes through some thick and straight singletrack, goes over I-64 on a small bridge, and then hits some fun but narrow singletrack with a few jumps and a fun but short area of down grade to pick up speed. I put it as a three because these are trails in Kentucky not Tahoe or NORCAL.

    This is a really fun little trail, especially considering that it is in a city park. The 2 miles are crammed into a densely wooded area that is probably no more than 3/8 of a mile square, yet one is rarely aware of other users who may be on a switchback 20 feet from you.

    Nice variety of singletrack, wider areas, and even surface paved roads to easily get from one section to another so you can ride what you want easily.
