“Beautiful”
Review of Old Frankfort Pike

Reviewed 22 October 2016 via mobile

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

Stumbled across this road on Google Maps, and am glad we drove it!

Beautiful rolling hills, narrow road, stately trees, fences and fences and fences, and stone walls.

Would love to see it in the fall w the leaves turning.

If you are in Lexington - take this drive!

Our first drive was the Paris Pike from Lexington to Paris and back to Lexington. There are some pretty areas along this divided highway drive including some very old rock fences - look for the signs telling their age. Some fences are as old as the late 1800's and built by Irish immigrants. Our next drive was on the Old Frankfort Pike from Lexington to Frankfort. This drive was my favorite of the two because of one section of the road which has rock fences on both sides with mature trees along the road making a canopy over the road - great photo op but difficult to stop & take photos. There are not many places to pull off the road - few shoulder areas and a lot of traffic. We drove this in the fall and it was absolutely beautiful. Both drives are worth a look and won't take you too long.

If you are travelling between Lexington, KY and Louisville or Frankfort, you should get off of the Interstate and travel this beautiful two lane road which will take you through some great horse farms.

This was a beautiful drive between Lexington and Frankfort featuring horse farms and gently rolling hills. It is a narrow, curvy road so take it slow and just enjoy! We drove it on a Sunday morning and encountered almost no traffic! If you happen to pass through Wallace Station, be sure to stop for a meal. We enjoyed a delicious lunch there.
