Other option would be Daniel Boone National Forest with S-Tree and Turkey Foot right next to each other in the London District and the long (64 miles loop) Redbird in the Redbird District. Lots of challenging trails- hope you like rocks! : :ride: Both are 45-60 minutes from London KY.

Have fun- I'm riding there the 18-19th with my brother.

Aww man these places look nice! I would really like to do a 64 mile loop. How long does it take roughly?

If your coming down I-75 South, Redbird & Daniel Boone Trail system would be a few hours closer than Land between the lakes, as it is in Western Ky about 4 hours from London, Ky. There are a few high walls to climb at Daniel Boone Trails system.

Doesn't sound like your going to have a problem with this but stay away from I 81 and Bristol TN. It's the NASCAR night race on the 26th. 150,000 people. :applause: There will be an influx of people Fri and Sat on I75, I40, I81 etc. Not trying to discourage you just to inform. :thumbsup: Daniel Boone has some great trails. I have always had fun up there. I highly recommend it. :ride:

What area are you looking at? Go to my website www.kyharescramble.com Look at the schedule. Different areas, maps. I can hook you up if you nail down an area! Come down on Sept 17, have a race that weekend! (Schedule change from the 10th)

That is quite an opening page on your website! I was waiting for the color to explode onto the screen. :thumbsup::ride:
