This is the kind of trail that you dream of(at least I do). Fast, technical, seems like DH all the time, Jumps, waterholes, ruts, berms, roots, rocks, it has your attention all the time..Hypnotic. 80% Big ring, rim and rail your way through this MTB/BMX highway. Double trck all the way(which is great, allows multiple line choice) I will definately be returning here regularly. (and adding some travel to my suspension!) A must ride in your travels. Nice thing is that the gravel road that brings you into the campground runs along side (within 150') the trail for the top 6 miles or so, you have the option of riding the road back, you could also shuttle it, but riding it both ways is great. Camp area is really nice too. MX/ATV users courteous and friendly. ENJOY!

One local mentioned to me that there were actually 96 miles of trails that extend from this area of the Daniel Boone. Several downhill rips make this one of the more exciting rides in Kentucky, especially for those wanting a touch of flavor mixed with their cross country. Extensive ATV use often ruts the trails in the wet season but it's far from unrideable, even in the worst conditions. If you go, DON'T GET LOST.

Begin at the main camping area as metioned and proceed to find your own route. This is an extensive network of trails. I recommend going with someone who has been before on your first ride there. The route I usually take requires two cars because we park one at the bottom of the hill. This allows a downhill finale of about 2 miles to top off our ride.

Hold on to your pa-camelbaks, If you want out and out pure speed with a smigin of desaster waiting to happen, and you like your riding Proffesional WWF-WCW style you have went to the right place. I have turned my front wheel into a nice wire basket in a rutt doing about 20 if that's any indication of possible fun you may have. As a matter of fact, my last crash happened when I over crossed a jump and coudn't pull it back in time. LOTS and LOTS of Bio air possible. This trail is very fun but dangerous for the inexperianced and experianced alike.

Customer Service

Start from where the black top ends on the road heading to the campsite. When the black top ends there should be a gate and a side road to your left. Pull in there and park your vehicle. Sorry no restrooms, But after you deal with that issue, take the side road down about 200 yards. On your right should be a red gate, this is where the Mill Creek Section of the trail begins. From there it is about 6 miles to the campsite and a 12 mile ride out and back.

Hot diggity damn this is a great trail with one major glaring weakness...where is the local mtb chapter to work on this trail? This trail is fun, fast, and everything the guy in the first review says. There are about 30 gazillion places to catch air here, but I wouldnt call it dangerous. I think a beginner could ride this, but they may have to walk a couple of the decents or buy a ticket to the dirt buffet.

It appears to be primarily used by the ATV'ers, and to my suprise, the ones we passed were very courteous and pulled over to make room for us. This trail is in the last place I would expect to see a respect for a mtn biker dressed like an alien in colorful team sponsored garb manually pedaling his machine instead of squeezing the throttle.
For the love of God, someone from the local chapter get out there and funnel those water holes with water bars. The deep water holes (even on a dry day) are the only thing that makes this trail less than perfect.

I have relatives in the area and if you email me at the above address I would be more than happy to spend a weekend redirecting the water on that trail.
Get a work party together and its an excuse for me to come up from Hotlanta.

421 into sand gap, right turn at the S-tree sign, then a left at the fork in the road, then park at the first big iron gate you see on your left, approx 7 miles from the right you took off 421 back there.
