Koomer Ridge is a nice long trail with easy rolling terrain punctuated with a nasty climb.

Runner Notes

The climb up from Chimney Top Creek (Cuss Joe Hill) is brutal and relentless. It has some rocky technical sections.

Description

From the Koomer Ridge Trailhead, run back out to the main campground road and find the singletrack between the two forks. Take this until it crosses the left fork, passes through a camping area, and finally leaves the campground for open forest.

The trail follows a broad ridge through woods for a long way. After passing the Buck Trail intersection, the character changes and the ridge becomes more narrow. Eventually, you begin losing elevation and quickly test your quads as you descend Cuss Joe Hill.

Koomer Ridge Trail ends at the intersection with Rough Trail at Chimney Top Creek.

Run in reverse from Rough Trail #221 - Chimney Top Creek to KY 715 the long grueling climb back to the ridge is an area testpiece.
