Kentuck ORV Trail

Average Rating:    (4.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 10

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!!!

Trail Directions
From I-20 take Exit 185 and go South on HWY 21 towards Munford. Turn left on Macintosh Road (I think it is also called Talledega 172) and go about two miles past the Antioch Baptist Church and look for the KENTUCK ORV trail on your left and turn right. This rough paved road turns to gravel/dirt after which you turn right at the next KENTUCK ORV trail and go 2.2 miles and turn left into the parking area. THIS IS A FEE USE AREA that is striclty enforced but well worth the $3 for admission.

Summary:
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!

Recommended Route:
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.

Summary:
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!!

Recommended Route:
any of the routes are good ones

Other recommended trails in the same area:
iron legs, oak mountain, gene's loop

Summary:
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!

Recommended Route:
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

Other recommended trails in the same area:
iron legs, cheaha and oak mtn

Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
All of them are really cool.
