“A scenic trail along the Cumberland River.”— Jeff Carter
The trail follows the Cumberland River for approximately 5 miles. It crosses rock very similar to the infamous slickrock in Moab, UT. There are challenging areas, but not much elevation change. Do not make any turns until the trail dumps you out on a gravel road. It is all singletrack to that point. Turn right on the gravel road and climb up to the end of this section at KY 700.
If you don't like gravel or climbing, turn around at the gravel road and head back. You can retrace your path back to the parking lot or make a lollipop by finishing on the Blue Bend Loop. Approximately 3.5 mi back, there is a wooden kiosk. Go up the hill to run Blue Bend Loop back to KY 90 bridge to make the lollipop. There is a very nice downhill at the end of Blue Blue Bend Loop.
