    Any MTB Trails in Burlington/Florence, KY?

    I am going to Burlington, KY this Sunday, which is right by Florence, KY. These are small towns right outside Cincinnatti, OH. I don't want to drive into Cincy, though.

    I wonder if there are any trails, and if so, any maps, and how to get there. I am talking my folding bike (Dahon Jack) to ride, which is rigid, but I have ridden many trails on it, and it is fine.

    Thanks.

    hey dude. i live in taylor mill which is 20 min from florence. there is a park with bike trails called idlewild. heres the link http://eitrails.home.insightbb.com/ great trails. if your somewhat good at mtb, skip beginner intermediate and go straight to loop 2 adv. then loop 1, then technical trail. the tech trail is good but its a lot of steep climbing.

    Hey, thanks a lot - I will be riding there this Sunday. I don't know when I will be there, because I have to help my wife do some stuff for her job (that's why I will be there). She is selling antiques at the Burlington Antique Show; we will arrive there at around 4am.

    I wonder if there is cell phone coverage at that park? In case I break my leg or something. Probably.

    Thanks for the info

    I almost ran over a red fox, (ran in front of me).

    That was a fun ride, nice and shady, like a salad. My BlackBerry mapped it for me:

    I second the vote to idlewild.
