Here are some pics I took in July of Lexington's only current bike trail. Someday it is supposed to be part of trial that goes from Louisville to Ashland, though right now it is only 1 mile long. It is located just south of Hamburg Pavilion

The trail currently ends under I-75

The countryside is so beautiful- and the horses are too. Will have to show these to my 6 year old-she loves horses. Thanks for posting. I hope to see more on here too.

My wife and I cannot wait to move because of the unbelievable snobbery here.

I have thought about why this place is so snooty and may have an answer. Most people don't think very highly of KY, but there are a lot of students who come from other parts of the country to attend UK. I also believe that there are quite a few graduates who for some reason decide to stay. The college graduate rate in KY alone is something like 30% so these people who graduate truly believe they are above the rest of the KY 'rednecks' Also, Lexington and Louisville receive the majority of the state funding because of their universities, while areas like Hazard are absolutely dirt poor. This provides for the snooty attitude that so many 'outsiders' refer to when discussing Lexington. Also, the fact that KY is traditionally a fairly poor region and the select few in Lexington/Louisville have multi-million dollars horse farms, doesn't help. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Down Home Kentucky link. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes of Kentucky set to My Old Kentucky Home. It's the everyday things in the slideshow pics that capture why Kentucky is special. Like reliving a memory. Thanks for the link.

I would like to move to KY when I retire and I was hoping to move outside of Lexington, but I only want to find a few acres and I was wondering if it will be hard to find a little parcel with a modest house. I currently live in CO and I have horses, but I am a 56 year old woman team roper. Quite a bit different than the horse farm type I'm afraid. Any ideas of where I could find a little homestead? I don't mind being 30-45 minutes from lexington. Thanks folks-what a beautiful state you live in!

Danville, Ky and the surrounding micropolitan area sounds exactly like what you described.

Danville micropolitan area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Site Selection magazine ranked the Danville Micropolitan Statistical Area 41st out of 694 micro communities in the United States for new and expanding economic development projects in 2008.[2]
Lots of open space for a horse farm.
