If you're down near Marion, check out Grapefield Rd (614) to Burkes Garden Rd (623). You can pick up 614 a little south of Princeton off 52. Very enjoyable and scenic. If you follow 623 thru Burkes Garden it turns into a 10 mile gravel stretch and dumps you out on the Blue Grass Trail (42) which is a nice road as well and you can take that over to 16 a little north of Marion. Highly recommended.

I heard about Burke's Garden, a valley formed by a collapsing cavern. Not only is it a pretty valley, it sounds like the road in and out is pretty cool.
