Horine Reservation Red Trail is a 5.8 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Fairdale, Kentucky that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding.
This is a very well maintained loop located in the Horine Reservation of Jefferson Memorial Forest. Just like all of the other trails within the forest, it has very clear trail markers with the trail itself being very well kept. The Red Trail is the longest loop with an optional shortcut 3.1 miles
Great trail with 2 rather steep climbs. Much of the trail is along beautiful ridges with good views when the trees are bare.
Very nice trail. 2 intermediate hill's to climb.
Well marked course. Nice steep climbs for walking.
Wasn't expecting it to be as narrow and have as many steep inclines/declines as it did. It was a major work out. You almost start to feel lost but as soon as you do you see a red marking of some sort to let you know you're on the right track. It's more miles than listed on the camp grounds, they have it listed as 4.2 when it's really about 6 miles long. So I wasn't fully prepared but still concurred it!
Little harder than thought. Have a ridge you snake down and then have to go up. But most of trail in good shape. Trail down ridge is narrow and fairly steep. But doable.
