It was a great hike with easy to moderate trails. Some of the trails are a little hard to follow though.

Amazing!!! I took my 4.5 year old son on his strider and he had a blast. Super easy to find and trails are easy to follow. Thanks!!

Absolute blast! 1st time doing a trail like this. Got over my head a little bit but it started out easier and built up to the tougher spots. Beautiful scenery. Will be back soon.

Great place for a ride. I will say the advanced trails were better groomed. Great loops. Study the map pretty well if you've never been.

My favorite place to mountain bike at. The run to the bottom is very fun, bmx style. The trails at the bottom all follow the same loop, but are different.

Very nice woodsy area to get away on your bike for a while. Trails are good for every skill level, from beginners to skilled riders.

I am pretty new to mtn biking, and this place is great. Starting out, you have a downhill loop that is smooth and quick. Then you can go from beginner to technical based on your experience. always a great work out.

Good hike, I went on a night hike there which was really interesting. Love how close it is, not to many N. Kentucky hikes :)

Trails were great. Very nice place to
Ride, and I love the newer section that was recently added. I thought the trails were marked fine, just pay attention to the colors and directions of the arrows and you will not have any problems.

True that there is moderate amount if difficulty. Not what I was expecting though. Most of it is in open field with lots of brush. Not very scenic and trails are not marked well.

Ran the Topo Adventure Trail Running race here. Ice storm had hit the night before so there was ice everywhere and fell several times but still enjoyed it. These are mountain biking trails so trying to run when bikes are here may proof difficult. Also with trails zig zagging in and out of each other one may easily get lost or disoriented, but since they are confined to a small area it shouldn't be hard to re-orient yourself. May come back for a run, maybe.

England-Idlewild Trails are awesome! Many varying degrees of difficulty from novice to extremely technical. With over 11 total miles of trails, there is something for everyone. They were created with mountain biking in mind; and feature creek crossings, bridges, banked turns, jumps, etc.
