"Located about 45 miles west of Louisville, Kentucky. Taken slowly, it's a gentle romp through the woods, with just enough technical challenge to keep it from being mundane. Taken at speed, it's a challenging little loop with rocks, roots, ravines, and other wheel-turners. If you have a beginner itching to try out the sport, here's the place to go. The trail has a little bit of climbing, a few minimally technical sections, and can be completed in an hour or so.
A little experience will be helpful; real first timers may have to walk a few sections. The trail alone would be worth coming here for. Another reason to come down is that there's plenty of other stuff to do. There's camping, a clean beach with a modern bathhouse and concessions, picnic shelters and, of course, the lake. Tipsaw would be a great place to blow an afternoon in a canoe or sailboat, or fishing (electric motors only)."
