Lexington, Kentucky Map

Such a great hiking park within Fayette county. So many trails to choose from great for all skill levels and it's so pretty and peaceful. I'm sad it has regular business hours so the trails can get crowded pretty quickly but if you go early it's fine. I've seen a lot of deer on the trail earlier in the morning.

Nice scenic paved path.

The trails are rather short, but the springs and history more than make up for lack of long distance hiking. Very nice signage, visitors center, and though short, the trails are beautiful. Well worth a visit!

Rocky but fun. Tough for me to get any speed until I get stronger.
definitely need trail shoes.

The wife was visiting friends in Versailles and I was along for the ride. While in KY I thought I would give this a try.

I ran the "Red" trail, and although they do a good job marking the trails, there are a few places where many trails come together and intent is not clear.

No problem though as my "intent" was to get some trail running in and enjoy the scenery.

I thoroughly enjoyed this run. Especially the scenic overlooks. I did the Red trail clockwise, which I highly suggest doing. There is a very rocky (ankle-twisting) ascent after the overlook. I believe it is better to run that section as an ascent towards the end (when you are running slower) than to run it as a descent when your legs are fresh and you want to go fast.

Regardless, I look forward to opportunities to run this again when in the Lexington area.
