Runner Notes

There is loose gravel in places. Of all the roads in the immediate vicinity, this is the only one with residences along it. With houses come dogs, though currently they are fenced or tied up. Watch for ATVs, dirtbikes, and other motorized vehicles.

Description

Fixer Road is a county-maintained gravel road that passes through the essentially defunct community of Fixer. At one time, Fixer was the hub of operations for the Big Sinking Oil Field and the remnants of those extraction operations are evident throughout the area.

Fixer parallels the Sheltowee Trace to the east and provides a diversion from paved running you would encounter there or loop possibilities. It also provides an important non-paved connection between the trails in the two separate parcels of the Pendergrass-Murray Recreational Preserve (PMRP) which is owned by the Red River Gorge Climbers Coalition (RRGCC).

The Flat Holler Trail and Sore Heel Trail are located in the southeastern parcel on Bald Rock Fork, and there is distinct potential for trails in the Coalbank Hollow parcel to the northwest. Fixer Road and Bald Rock Fork Road connect the two areas.
