My wife and I broke down in October to ride this trail it was a beautiful trail was definitely go back it was very much worth the drive from Hamlin West Virginia
Rode out & back from Fisherville Paddling Access, through Pope Lick Park, to Seatonville Road. Excellent facilities and great trail surface. What more could you ask for?
We started at the Jenny's Creek Trailhead and went for about 8 miles. The highlights are the fantastic trailheads (Jenny's Creek had a toilet and plenty of parking) and Griffith Family Farm market at Swamp Branch Trailhead (don't miss the opportunity to stop here for the baked treats and sandwiches). The detractor is the loose gravel in sections of the trail that tired us out very quickly. The owner of Griffith Family Farm market told us the section of trail up to Swamp Branch is scheduled for paving and the rest of the trail will remain crushed stone for horse riding.
This is a must visit trail and we will ride it again the next time we are in the area. Prestonsburg did a great job setting up this trail. They included picnic tables and benches along the trail and several bike repair stations. The best rest stop along the way was the covered bridge crossing Caney Creek at mile marker 6. Someone was very creative in placing the upper section of a school bus as the cover for the covered bridge. At the end of the asphalt, the old rail bed continues into David, KY. A store owner downtown told us they hope to continue the formal trail to David - can't wait.
Could be a great trail, they need to re-pave about 2/3rds of the trail. Really bumpy with some of the ruts 2 to 3 + inches high. It has good shade and good uphill.
The first 2/3 are down hill which is nice but as the previous person stated the trails are littered with tree ruts that have raised the pavement 2 to 3+ inches in some spots the rest of the trail is a nice little workout
If you’re a cyclist who’s into simply getting miles with some mixed topography with no regard to scenery or shade, this is for you. As a cyclist who simply enjoys exploring and tooling around, this was not pleasant for much of the joirney. Too much traffic, boring office parks, and LOTS of sun. It may be better in 30 years when the trees they’ve planted start to mature.
We parked in the public lot by the muraled flood wall but could only ride part of the trail to the west to where construction blocked us from continuing. The Detour sign led us to busy 45, with no indication of where the detour led. 45 has no shoulder or sidewalks. We missed half of the trail. Park at the west end, in Noble Park and ride east.
I’ve been on just about all of the “Rail to Trails” in Ky. and this is head and shoulders above the rest. Cleanest trail, cleanest restrooms, well maintained, just an absolute gem. Thank you Prestonsburg and Floyd Co..
We called this bridge day because we started on the east end of the Louisville side of the Ohio River at the beginning of the trail and then traveled west and actually saw and four bridges. The concrete trail meanders along the waterfront and is a very beautiful and well-maintained trail. There was a concert being set up at the waterfront area which we had to detour around which was very easy: we went all the way to the section past the railroad yard, where the mud disallowed us to go further; There was a homeless community underneath the bridge; Towards the end of the West Trail, there is a really interesting section where the markings of how high the river came during floods is embedded in the sidewalk that you bike along.
This trail is 8.5 miles asphalt. Beautiful area. Several wooden bridges and school bus cover . In the summer there is lots of shade. There are several sheds, picnic tables , bike racks, and port-a potties. Also water access in 3 locations. The trail is flat no hills or incline … we very much enjoy this trail and ride it often - we live near by.
Went on this trail one sunny afternoon for two miles and found no shade. We just drove 30 miles south to Greenville and found a great paved 6 mile, shaded trail.
