Very nice scenic drive, to get away from hectic traffic and see the horse farms and forested areas. Nice way to get away from it all without going very far.

Seriously nice route for scenic drive. Well maintained and relatively little traffic. Very good ice and snow removal. Just nice all the way around.

This is one of the most beautiful drives that we have ever taken. The driving tour (you can pick up a map of the Bluegrass Country Driving Tour at any visitor's center) takes you through rolling pastures with beautiful horses and magnificent homes/stables. We visited...More

We were road tripping from Cincinnati to Nashville and this by far was one of my favorite scenic routes we took. The farms were amazing. We had the windows down, the smell of the grass, huge properties, green fields as far as you can see....More

We ended up on the roads behind and near Keeneland horse track and found beautiful scenic areas. We made some wrong turns here and there, but kept going! Enjoy!
