With Much Appreciation:
We are most thankful to the grant dollars received from the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, Oldham County Fiscal Court, Oldham County Community Foundation, Jane N. Newton, Rogers Group, Kenny’s Excavating, Inc. and the many private and public donations that allowed BA to secure and install this new trailhead location. And of course our great landowners: Nina Bonnie, Cedar Hill Farm, Ernie Harris and the University of Louisville. We are so grateful!
Parking is available at the new trailhead!
The solar-powered entry gate system has been installed as requested by our landowners, to provide safety and security for all.
Pull into the trailhead entrance and approach the gate and keypad on the left. Enter the current gate code slowly, making sure the keys punched are being fully connected. (Current BATA Members receive the gate code, which does change periodically, upon submitting their completed and signed BATA Membership and Guest Application. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the code.)
When the gate is fully open, pull through moving toward the trailhead. The gate will automatically close behind you.
Drive forward to the trailhead ahead to park.
Be sure to take your phone with your saved BATA Member Digital ID (or have a copy with you) and lock your vehicle. Carry your phone in case of an emergency!
Proceed to the woodlands and enjoy!
When leaving, approach the gate slowly. It will open automatically and will close automatically once you have pulled through.
Trails are open sunrise to sunset, as the BATA rules state.
