Written Directions

Take KY 89 heading east from KY 490 (near Livingston, KY) and the ride ends at McKee, KY at US 421.

Scenery

KY 89 runs along the middle fork of Rockcastle River and Indian Creek. The route is canopied by trees in most parts with some homes dotted along the way.

Drive Enjoyment

This road is loaded with curves and for the most part, the road is pothole free. We encountered several areas of downed tree limbs that made some parts a challenge.

Tourism Opportunities

For a short ride, there is nothing available for stops along the way.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

We rode this route on a week day, very limited traffic except for a few other bikes coming the opposite direction.

I was very disappointed, this appeared to be a casual ride with a bit of.sight seeing. The roads were horrible with construction and detours everywhere. Maybe in a few years

One side of the road is mostly hill, the other creek. It's a delightful twistie ride in the country. No traffic to speak of. Noticed the further south we went, the less maintained it was. Still good road, but more debris and limbs on highway. There is no pull off on this road. At one point we crossed on a one lane bridge, that's how out in the country you are. Beautiful forested area.
