The first thing you will notice about these trails is there are not tire tracks. There are no tire tracks because this place charges $10 per bike! What a joke.

The trails were nice, but obviously they are only trying to deter riders. Avoid this place at all costs.

Customer Service

Don't bother.

Well, the trails are awesome! The main loop is a blast to ride and will challenge most folks. There are also additional loops built just last year that will give you additional ride time and you'll be thankful for the work the fellas and ladies put into them. Before you go though stop by Outdoor Ventures in Radcliff and get a map of the trails. I'll be honest though, the park service does charge 10bucks to ride the trails. That's why I don't go out very often. It's a shame too, the trails are great and fun to ride but b/c of the pricetag, I can't give these trails a "5" rating.

Customer Service

Green loop is the most utilized by both bikes and hikers but there are some additional loops that were built in 2011.

Since reopening Otter Creek has been a big disappointment. The trails are minimal and are not easy to find. Especially the trails down by the creek. Not only that but these dumbass horse riders are tearing up the trails more and more everytime i go back. To top it off, they charge $10 PER BIKER not per vehicle. If you live in Louisville do not waste your time driving all the way out there and paying $10 to get lost on horse trails more or less.

Park is re-opening next year under State ownership instead of City of Louisville ownership. Expect day use fees upon reopening. a quote from a recent Courier Journal article follows:

"All park users can expect to pay to play.

"There will be a user fee at the Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area to offset the cost of the things we don't ordinarily do," Kinman said, adding that fees might vary by activity.

Fisherman, for example, might pay less than trail riders because they've already paid for licenses that contribute to the property funding.

Kinman said the agency hopes to have an on-site manager in place sometime this year.

"We're saying late spring 2011 for the opening," he said. "But it's going to be tough. There's a lot of work to do in a short amount of time.""

Otter Creek Park has been closed by the Louisville Metro Gov. It is no longer legal to ride there. As of Sept 09 they have made no plans to re-open it.

this park is shut down due to the idiot mayor in Louisville if this park was on the river front it would have been open forever.Downtown is where the mayor is spending all the money. Great news for tax payers were paying ten million tax payer dollars for the next thirty years so we can have a sports arena great job moron.

Customer Service

All trails at Otter are awesome. Nothing to technical or dangerous. One of my favorite trails in the Louisville area, actually it is my favorite trail. You can easily put in 9 miles without riding the same trail.

Customer Service

Run the big loop counter clockwise by going thru the pine trees on the start.

2 hill climbs that can get the lungs pumping but not too bad.

Thease trails range from as easy to dificult as you can hope to find. I was out riding this trail every day and it was some of the most fun in my life. Last year I moved away and miss this trail dearly.

Customer Service

If you like to jump over logs and ride mud go down by the creek, the upper loop by the nature center is pure fun and good for new bikers. Don't be afraid to try one of the many lesser used trails, it's all good.

I really like these trails. I wasn't able to ride all of them so I'm anxious to get back next summer. From what I saw this would be a great place for beginners and intermediate riders. I've read that there's some tech DH stuff, but I'm not sure where. I also spoke with someone who said the trail by the river is much more technical than the upper trails. The area I rode was mostly to the north of the Nature Center. There were enough roots to keep it interesting but I wouldn't say it was technical. It was rolling singletrack with rideable hills for anyone in average shape. The trails are very clearly marked and the scenery is nice including a great overlook of the river.

Customer Service

Everyone I saw seemed to be heading north from the Nature Center and riding it clockwise.
