Summary:
Trail is pretty much destroyed due to logging in and around the area. Other than a mile or two at the very beginning (7 Dwarfs is still there) it's not worth going.

Really sad to see this trail go, was one of the best rugged and tough trails around.

Summary:
I think this is the best place to ride MTB in this area of KY. The trails are tight enough to keep you guessing and there's enough variety to ride for a few hours and not get bored. Plenty of solid climbs followed by good downhills and it's all twisty singletrack. I've been riding Younger's SS and rigid and it will beat the holy hell out of you. There are a lot of rocks, logs, log bridges and obstacles to go over. But the trails haven't been shown love in some time. The trailbuilding guru's have been spending time at Otter Creek but when/if they get out there the trails are ready for greatness once again. If you've never ridden here, stop by one of the bikeshops in Elizabethtown and get a map. The trails twist so much you can think you're lost, or maybe that was just me, but you're really fine. Better yet, see if one of the locals will meet you out there.

Recommended Route:
Everybody rides the same way, enter the trailhead just behind the guardrail and out to the switchbacks. The switchback climb is tough but you'll be forget about your gasping for air once you reach the singletrack at the top. I rode trails about a month ago and the switchbacks were getting a little eroded. Again, they need some TLC from trailbuilders in addition to some of the obstacles in the singletrack loops. My favorite rides once you're on top of the mountain include Possum Run to Four Way to Bee's loop and then out to Lucas Loop. There's a local fella who been working on a downhill section that looks great but on a rigid SS I'll leave that up to the big hit boys.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Otter Creek, Waverly Park

Summary:
Rode these trails for the first time today and was extremely impressed. Ive ridden everything from Brown County to Waverly and Briar hill and this falls in the upper end. The decent from the parking lot was not too bad. The trails are in really good condition and fast and flowy. Plenty to ride and switchbacks are sick. Younger creek is a hidden paradise. Not many people talk about it but i would highly recommend it. Very few technical areas yet there are some rocks. An avid seasoned cyclist would really appreciate the openess in the trails. Will definitively be going back again.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Waverly, Cherokee, Briar hill, Fort Duffield.

Summary:
I've been riding this trail since I moved here last Nov. and I gotta say...I love it!!! I usually ride the outer loop(backwards from normal direction) lots of gradual climbs and then some fast downhill runs. People mostly talk about the Seven Dwarfs switchbacks because its a heck of a climb, but its also great to hike up and then bomb a run down!!! Some sections are pretty grown up, but I dont think even heavy traffic could keep up with the vegatation. Once you get to the top its all rolling terrain and fun to ride(even on my big bike)and there are many sections of fast and fun switch backs to play on. Its my local trail so I am kinda partial, but give it a try. You wont be disappointed!!!

Recommended Route:
Start out at parking area and cross the bridge to trailhead. go up the 7 switchbacks until you get to the 3-way(this is marked) go right to take the outer loop or left for Possum Run. All trails will come back to the parking area, and if you need a bail out you can take the Wagon Trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fort Duffield

Summary:
Fast and fun describes youngers the best. The switchback attack at the beginning really gets the legs and heart pumping but once you get to the top be ready to hammer down for a few miles. The trails are marked well and not to difficult. 2 big climbs total for all 12 miles of trail, besides that it's a must ride trail.
