Just a quick 15 minute drive from Fish Island, the North South trail offers amazing single track mountain biking. I prefer to head North from Golden Pond. Ride the whole 30 miles then hit the Canal Loop or do a simple out and back based on the mileage you want to ride.
This well maintained 10 mile loop is one of the best anywhere. The Barkley Lake side is flowy and smooth. After crossing under the canal bridge you hit the Kentucky Lake side and things get steep, rocky, rooty. My 12 year old daughter rides the Kentucky side but it's not for newbies.
This 16 mile out and back trail has several places to enter and exit for those who don't want to do the full length. This is an easy gravel grinder with beautiful views, bridges, bathrooms, benches, and a planetarium! There are some challenging climbs for those looking for a workout. If you want to avoid the climbs just let us know and we'll help you design a ride on this trail without them!
This trail system is located on the southern end of LBL and features some spectacular views and single track. While you're there be sure to visit historic Fort Donelson
