Overview

This is a nice intermediate course with about 75% singletrack and roughly 25% doubletrack trails.

Need to Know

Bring cash to tip your wonderful bartenders at the taproom afterwards!

Description

The course features approximately 6.2 miles of technical singletrack trail. The starting elevation is 710 ft. and the max elevation is 792 feet. The course features a total gain of 949 ft.

This course will take you across multiple creek crossings and a couple nice views on top of the ridge. There is lots of shade from various native trees and an open doubletrack pasture section for gaining speed. The trail offers a little more technicality than Capital View has in Franklin County. The trail is comparable with similar rocks and roots like Skullbusters in Scott County or Knucklehead in Woodford County.

Flora & Fauna

Numerous wildflowers throughout the course, and if you like the smell of cedar trees, you'll love this course.

History & Background

The West Sixth Farm has ten in house beers on tap, two cows, thirty some odd chickens, a honeybee hive, Cascade and Chinook hops growing up poles, over four miles of trails, some great picnic snacks, one pretty pond and one fishin' pond, countless black and raspberry brambles tucked in between cider apple trees, and those beautiful rolling hills of the great Bluegrass State.
