This isn't a trail. The majority of the route around the city occurres on major roads with no tree cover, where there is a constant stream of cars flying by. Breathing car exhaust by busy highways is not my idea of a trail. To make matters worse, Concord street has numerous houses with loose territorial dogs, so this "trail" is extremely dog-unfriendly...

Been several years since I had been up to this rock. We started our hike. Following the all trails app. Since I had been there several years ago, I knew somewhat on what area to go to. We really need to start marking these trails. To someone that has never been to this. It would not have been found.

I have biked the entire trail but mainly stay on the Johnson County/Hager Hill side. Great, relaxing place for a bike ride.

Cool rock that looks like a giant skull.

Great scenic trail can't wait to see it in the fall when the leaves change colors.

Scenic view of historic Paintsville Ky. This trail would be beautiful in the fall and you could see all of town. This trail is good for mountain biking and hiking. Mountain Bikers are encouraged to start with Skull Rock Overlook first, because this end of the trail is all downhill.

Beautiful day on the Levisa while kayaking

First bike ride since I was a kid. First bike ride intended for 'cycling' or exercise. the uphills were somewhat difficult for a first time rider but someone with moderate experience would have no trouble. beautiful views.

Nice ride. There was a lot to see from scenery to man made things like the tunnel.

great for beginners. plenty of scenery. a tunnel to go through about 13 miles in. the views are bland though from the hagerhill trail head though. I recommend starting at the swamp branch trail head. it is at about the 9mile point.

Walked from where the trail begins in Hager Hill to the Denver Post Office. Trail is well maintained, very easy, several nice bridges. Makes for an easy walk or bike ride.

trail is currently only half done at 17 miles as of 8/11/2013. Good ride though. many bridges and plenty of country side to view. Easy enough for beginners to ride yet enjoyable enough for more advance riders. This is also a horse trail for horse riders.
