Scenery

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.

Road Quality

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.

Roadside Amenities

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.

Absolutly love this ride. From where I'm living it's a great little jaunt for a relaxing Sunday ride. There are plenty of twists and bends and hills and dales. The roads are smooth and clean, for the most part. I ride a hardtail and have no complaints. The general store is still as quant and cool as it was a decade ago, when I first started going, and I'm positive you'll enjoy it as well. On a nice day there's always a large turnout off riders so grab a sarsaparilla and pulled pork sandwich and enjoy the conversation and scenery. And don't forget to say hello to the major

Rabbit Hash IS the destination NOT the roads around there. Particularly IF they are having an event which is quite often. I found it HARD to find. They do have an apartment to rent I stayed in if you drink a brew or 2 too many. It was quaint but clean. The day I was there they had a band, food vendors etc. FUN!!
