According to its web site, Turkey Run Park is scheduled to open in a few weeks. I can tell you from a first-hand look, a likely-illegal bike ride from Broad Run Road to Bardstown Road through the park, that it is pretty spectacular.
Sure, the signs aren’t finished, but the big attraction was there before the roads were put in. I rode past a No Trespassing sign off Broad Run Road on a pristine stretch of asphalt. Designed for biking and hiking, I encountered a monstrous hill that I couldn’t summit without getting off the bike and walking.
The reward was a series of spectacular views, with no one else around, the only sound coming from birds and very distant roads. I passed a few construction crews and went for miles on the untested road. Yes, it was hilly, and I hit 32 mph on a downhill. Park planners have created some vistas that allow you to see for miles – and this morning was uncluttered by clouds.
I made the round trip in less than two hours — a perfect addition to the neighborhood
