      Year-round nature enthusiasts have miles of trails to explore at French Lick Resort. On foot, more than five miles of dirt and gravel wind throughout the Hoosier National Forest - perfect for wildlife viewing and exercise in the fresh air.

      Trade that walking stick for a mountain bike and pedal Buffalo Trace's tree-lined and rock-filled eight plus miles that ascend to the top of Mount Airie. The easy tread and grades, with the signature Alex Stewart speed on the descent, welcomes both beginners and experts.

      Trail Use: FREE, and it is very important that riders are signing the liability waiver that is in the Golf Pro Shop prior to riding. Management also asks that you sign in when you arrive and out when you leave.
