This is a very good intermediate bike trail. At the beginning there is a warm-up course with a variety of obstacles from drops to jumps.

Visiting from out of town and was happy to find these great wooded trails very close to Elizabethtown. There are spurs and alternate trails and old roads so it is not just a single obvious route around the lake. Signage could be a little better, or at least a map at the trailhead would be an awesome enhancement, but the area is small enough to keep your bearings if you view the AllTrails map before you start. No parking area at the main trailhead, so I just parked on the roadside. Better place to park roadside at an unmarked access point just down the road from the official trailhead. Nice place for a short trail run or some hiking. Can also fish in the lake.

A handful of trails to choose from at various lengths. On warm days I bring the kiddos here to play in the water.

Chose to hike the perimeter trail for rest day. Great trail and is definitely longer than AllTrails has it listed as. However, Saunders springs has it listed as a 10k but I think the mile markers may be off. I used my GPS and didn't take any short cuts but my tracking came out to be just short of 5.4 miles. Will attempt again next time.

Ran this last week, they made some changes to the Perimeter trail and turned it into a 10k. Lots of switch backs but perfect for anyone stay at Fort Knox who wants to get of the flat track. Bring your sandals and hop in the nice cool water once your done!
