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... More

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... More

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

We loved this drive and can't wait to return. Rolling hills, stone fences, picturesque horse farms, real Kentucky bluegrass. Found it by mistake.

We love great scenic drives and this is the best in Kentucky. A small road through rolling hills and horse farms (some of the top thorough bred farms in the world). A must do if you are in the lexington area. Its also nice in that it is the old route between lexington and Franfort so you can stop by... More

Old Frankfort Pile - My wife found this drive almost by accident. We had dinner in Midway and then went south out of town on Midway Road for 2 miles and then turned right on to Old Frankfort Pike and took it all the way back into Frankfort. There is an old tavern on the corner which is worth a... More
