These trails are quite technical by trail standards with many rocks and roots. Runners will be treated to miles of winding singletrack trails and natural landmarks that include stunning rock overhangs, Raven Bridge, Fern Bridge, Smokey Bridge, Shangra La Arch, Natural Bridge, Smoky Valley Lake, and many of the State Parks famous caves. This course is absolutely BEAUTIFUL #Kentuckysbestkeptsecret. Bring your camera and a dry pair of socks. There will be creek crossings and your feet will get wet!
