No. of Reviews: 12

Just follow the clearly marked maps at the trail head, or check in at Eddie O's Bike Shop in Campbellsville. A nice mix of rolling singletrack going through the woods beside Green River lake. As a plus, there is also a dedicated downhill section!

Reviewed by: Thomas Vacek , from Somerset, KY

Summary:
These trails have been RUINED by the coexisting horse riding
trails. They are trails for both horses and bikes, and this is not a
great combination. There should be trails for horses OR bikes -
not both. Basically, the track is RUINED. you have to get off your
bike every so many yards and try and make it through the OVER
ONE-FOOT DEEP horse hoof indentations in the mudd. I don't
care who you are and at what speed you are going - there is no
way you'll make it through that Sh#t. I was very disappointed
because the scenery is beautiful. My girlfriend and I were not very
happy with the experience. The only plus about this place is that
it had a confederate hospital (you know - civil war). And...since I
collect medical antiques - especially surgical kits - I really did
enjoy this part of our expedition. Unless you come here for some
fishing, or road biking (the roads are beautiful), or just a nice
scenic place - then don't come. The mountain bike trails suck ass
because the damned horses have absolutely ruined them.
SOLUTION: HAVE DESIGNATED BIKING TRAILS AND DESIGNATED
HORSE TRAILS. Jesus!!

Recommended Route:
Well...I took the main route for most of the trip, and a few side
trails. Please consult my detailed review section.

Summary:
grew up in a house a mile from the trail and enjoy riding it when i'm back home. Miles of singletrack with some fast straightaways and a few pesky roots and loose shale, otherwise not too hazardous. An ideal park to have a camp/bike/boat weekend...watch for Mr. park ranger if you are going to have an after ride brewsky, and make sure you buy it before you get there too- C-ville's dry as a bone...

Recommended Route:
from my Dad's house.....

Every few months

Reviewed by: Brutus , from Murfreesboro, TN

Summary:
Had a great time.. weather was perfect and saw more deer than riders. Couldn't believe nobody was out there on a Saturday. Took the Lindsay-Wilson race route from about a month ago. Really enjoyed it. This is the first time I've stayed on the lake side of the main road exclusivly. Much better, lots of ups and downs, some lung-busting climbs (for me), and lots of fast track! We camped at the corps of engineers campsite at Hodges Bend or something.. just north of Columbia.. great lake views and more trees than the state park campsite.. You do have to drive about 15 mins to get to the trails however.. I'd recommend it for anyone camping.

Recommended Route:
Started at the parking area across the street from the lodge. tried to follow the signs from the race held several weeks before.

Reviewed by: steve , from louisville

Summary:
Outstanding trail system, very well maintained, technical enough for most but plenty of breathers too, beautiful forest and lots of lake views/overlooks.

Recommended Route:
Just wander -- it all hooks up nicely, one main trail down the spine of the park with lots of side loops.
