Closed during hunting season (starting November 11).
This is a nice intermediate course with about 75% singletrack and roughly 25% doubletrack trails. Flava Flow is hands down one of the best downhill sections in central Kentucky featuring berms and a very fast course.
Need to Know
Bring cash to tip your wonderful bartenders at the taproom afterwards! And it's 2018 so this should go unsaid, but please don't litter :-)
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. Runners will be treated to miles of winding singletrack trails throughout the West Sixth Farm property.
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 then 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.
