The Hopper Creek Route is a very scenic and moderately challenging 27-mile route through Southeastern Laurel County. The Route begins at the Crooked Creek Golf Club parking lot. Please park near the tennis courts. The route has constant rolling hills. None of the hills are considered “challenging.” All of the route is on lightly traveled roads with the exception of 0.3 mile on KY HWY 229. However, this part of 229 is relatively straight and flat. Cars will be able to see you from some distance away.
