Love these trails. I've walked and run them for years now. The Lower Holly Loop connects to a variety of trails for a half mile stroll to a 6 mile hike or trail run. Other trails include the Upland Trail, Osage Trail, Sky Trail and Peaks Mill Trail. Some challenging ascents with 200-300 feet of elevation change. Two waterfalls. Picnic pavilion. Great spot for a day out with the family.

My usual trail running keeps me in the Rockies, but as I was in the Upper Midwest I thought it would be interesting to run in these surroundings. The woods and trail are similar to those I've run in Memphis' delta river area. You will run under thick canopy and soft ground as you meander around hardwood and pine forests. In you have time while you're in Louisville I would highly recommend this trail.

Wonderful outing - but with leaves down it was extremely easy to lose the trail!! Bring a map! The initial descent is steep, but uphill is all very gradual. Beautiful views and interesting stone features. I would definitely do this one again!

Nice relaxing ride through the woods and hills. Very nice big, big rolling hills. I was riding a horse and very much enjoyed the views . There was a dry creek bed at the bottom of the hill but no water flowing this late in the year. Enjoyed this trail...

I rode my horse on this trail. It is a big challenge …rock…rock…rock…cliffs and hills…I loved it but you sure needed to be on a accomplished trail horse! Some places the trail was hard to distinguish from mounds of rock. We picked our way through and traveled across the hills..Cliffs off to the side. This was no place for a foolish horse. There was a small waterfall also. We took our lunch there. Very beautiful trail. There was some bogs about half way through that you needed to traverse around. It was very beautiful and a trail I won't forget soon! Yes,,,I would do it again...
