My wife and I ride this loop ALL the time after dinner. It's 95% country road and we always get a great sunset on this ride that takes about an hour.
Traffic is usually slim & that lets us cruise about 35 - 50 mph and enjoy the scenery of horse farms, ag farms, and just good old Kentucky back roads.
504 is a true taste of what roads in Eastern KY used to be like. Narrow, twisty, kinda scary. It runs along a ridge with some great views, but don't take your eyes off the road for too long! If you waht a real hillbilly ride, you gotta take 504 !
This is an incredible ride through rural Kentucky. It includes a ride through the Nada Tunnel and down into the Red River Gorge. It is located in the heart of the Daniel Boone National Forest in the Appalachian Mountains. The Nada tunnel is a 900' single lane tunnel that was originally built for a narrow gauge train used to haul timber from the gorge.
