This route takes you from Union, KY through Walton, KY, down by the river to Rabbit Hash, KY (directly across the river from Rising Sun, IN), up to Florence, KY. It makes for a great, relaxing ride, with ammeneties at both ends, and a little of nothing in between. It's a nice ride to get away from everything, and the stop at Rabbit Hash General Store is very relaxing. You can get a drink and sit with other bikers (there are always a few there) by the river. The mayor of Rabbit Hash (a dog named Lucy) is always hanging around and loves to play.
There is quite a bit of scenery along this route, including farmland and general landscape. Most of it is surrounded by trees on both sides, so it feels like a very intimate ride, but parts of it are more open.
We didn't encounter any problems along the route. The road was very safe, and we didn't encounter any patches of gravel. It was a very well-maintained road, so no major potholes.
At the beginning of the trip and at the end of the trip, there are places to get food and gas, but along the route, it is mostly housing and back roads, so very little available. The point of the trip is the stop at Rabbit Hash General Store, though, where you can find lots of drinks, snacks, antiques, and any other items you might need.
