I drove by Riceville today and noticed the Dawkins trail was full of horse poop. I asked a friend who lives there and she said they had tried to walk on it and it already had deep hoof depressions and yes lots of manure. I thought you were going to be able to ride bikes on it too. I don't see that happening if horse riding is allowed. It is already a mess.

Just another example of humans on horses ruining a multi-use trail. Most horse riders do not care to destroy trails by riding when it's damp or riding on a trail surface that can not sustain horse traffic, leave horse crap everywhere, drop lots more trash than other trail users etc. Horses being ridden on The Dawkins Line is a bad deal.
yes its bad

I would not want to ride a bike or attempt to run or even walk on a trail that you have to dodge horse shit or a rough surface. A lot of tax dollars wasted if only horses are on it.

I guess they will be on horse back too? lmao its what is tearing up the trail now. I doubt they will have much security on it. All it takes is one phone call telling the druggies where the secuity is and they will dodge them somewhere on that 37 mile stretch. It will be a drug dealing haven.
who you foolin

Its a documented fact that DRUG-DEALERS/HEADS like to hike and take in mother nature. As a great man name named Red Foreman once said "DUMBAZZ".

waste of money

they are laying fine dense grade gravel and the horses are tearing it up. You cannot ride a bike on that or even walk with big holes in the trail and the horse shit is every where. poor management in this one.

Take a drive and look at the trail being built. Looking good.

What areas are being torn up by horses?

Trail looked fine from Hager Hill to Riceville.

The GodDamned state of Kentucky is broke by their own estimation yet they are wasting millions on a trail to nowhere. This money could have been used to fix the dangerious cliffs up by Porter School but no, we have to have a horse trail to Royalton.

I believe I said Horse Trail. The bikers and hikers can just ride/walk through the shit.
