Drove my parents down this scenic drive and then we stopped in Midway at Wallace Station for Monday night fried chicken. Beautiful barns and Thoroughbred horses. I just wish there were some areas to pull over to take some pictures!

This road definitely deserves its reputation. The road, the trees, the farms and pastures look like art as you drive through.

The Old Frankfort Pike was first built as a toll road from Lexington to Frankfort with stone fences lining each side of the road on many old farms. Many of the older horse farms front on the Old Frankfort Pike
