Kentuck ORV Trail - TRAIL

Kentuck ORV Trail - Trail, Munford, Alabama

A roller coaster for mountain bikes. Nothing technical, however there are some very steep climbs/descents. See map at trail head for several options on the 25+ miles of doubletrack. There are several options to various loops. The entire trail system is designed for four wheeleres so it is all at least 48" wide. You just have to yield to the motocrossers, REMEMBER you can hear them coming they can't hear you!!!

First, let me fine tune the directions a little. McIntosh Road is not well marked and I blew past it ending up on Cheaha Road and coming in the back way, which was considerably out of the way. Go south on Highway 21 to mile marker 246. McIntosh road is to the left directly across from it and is also CR 135. Go 1.2 miles to Kentuck Road and take a right. Start looking for ORV sign after the asphalt runs out. Now for the trail, I wish I would have heeded the advice below and waited a little longer for the trail to dry out. It's been about 5 days since we had rain and the ruts were still full of mud and water in places. Some of it was unavoidable and a couple of times mud and water were almost to my hubs. The mud is also very slippery!

I did the blue and white loops. The yellow route was closed because of some downed trees. My GPS indicated I did a little over 9 miles. I can tell this trail would be a fun ride when dry with lots of short downhills and uphills...some fun banking corners. I will go back and try it again! Only saw a couple of four wheelers and one motorcycle today, on a Wednesday. I'm sure the weekends are busy and I would not go then bacause the noise and motorized traffic would take away from the experience, in my opinion.

This trail is rollercoaster doubletrack. On a dry day, it is the best trail I have ridden in Alabama(that includes oak mountain) on a wet day it is the worst trail ever, almost unrideable. It is best to go on a week day as there is less traffic. SUper Fun!!

Customer Service

any of the routes are good ones

YEE! HAA!...not for the weak spirited, at all! i used to live near, so i could get a car-load of buds together, we'd camp at the trail head and shred-baby-shred! but even if it's just you, $3 is a bargan, they groom this trail often, so it's money well spent. try to go on a weekday as to avoid the motor-heads. also, don't let tunnel vision get the best of you, i've been hurt pretty bad a few times, so use caution!

Customer Service

there are 4 loops and there all killer, 2 in one day are all i was able to do. listen for motor-heads and try to pick a loop that's not buzzing with activity

I have only been once and it was really cool. Me and my wife had recently gone there and she hasn't been riding that long. It had became dark and she doesn't have a headlight on her bike but the trail are very smooth and not rutted out so she could run according to my headlights and one other rider behing us without incident.

Customer Service

All of them are really cool.

Major fun, except that in anything other than dry weather this trail turns to peanut butter - mud mud mud and lots of mud! If you don't like sharing your ride with beer-swilling, non-helmet wearing ORV riders then stay well away. For the extra hassle, its better to go to cheaha - cleaner trails, less dweebs to share with, and less bike clean up afterwards.
If you like getting your wheels stuck in 8 inch ruts make by ORV's, or you like having to stampede downhill at 30mph just to get enough momentum to carry you up the nest mud-slide hill, then this place may just be for you.

Customer Service

Ride the upper loop, the lower one sucks

I had a fantastic time riding this trail. I rode on a Sunday afternoon and there were 3 four wheelers riding around too. You can hear them coming several minutes in advance so it was no big deal at all.
The climbs can be really steep in some areas and there are a few big ruts, but the downhills are SCREAMING and there are big berm-like jumps that you can launch off of and into huge banked turns that are like walls. If you like speed at all, you'll love this place. The trail is wide (think 4 wheeler's) but it gives you plenty of choice for picking a line. Avoid it if it's been raining - I can see how it get's muddy. There were still two puddles and we're in the middle of a drought - but disc brakes meant that the mud has no effect other than splashing you a little.

Customer Service

White and Blue trails are both pretty good.

A fanatastic place to train and ride. If you're in shape you can ride all the loops (4). Be prepared for super fast downhills and many short popups. Your shifters will get a workout. All trails are rideable and smooth as butter! Unusual for a rocky place. The trail layouts are well done. Not straight up and down like you would expect from motocrossers. One warning!! Do not go near this place if it has rained within 8 to ten days. Two weeks is better which limits riding to about three or four weeks a year. Still it is well worth it, especially during droughts like last year.

Customer Service

Follow the blue route for a great introduction.

On the harder trails there are some fast downhills(you'd better have brakes, because I know from experience, that you can take quite a tumble), steep uphills, and if it has rained within the past 1 or 2 days, then some pretty deep mudbogs...This is an awesome ride, I reccommend it 100%...And for those of you who are camping, don't bother with an alarm clock, because the good ole' boys and there 4 strokes will wake you up in a heartbeat...

Customer Service

If you know how to ride, then the easy route is a little obnoxious, just because there is no challenge...But the harder trails are te best!
