One place I have planned to check out is the Big South Fork area in Tennessee, which is about an hour or so south of Somerset or Lake Cumberland. Check out:

I second Big South Fork. I was down there in November and the trails are incredible. We stayed at a cabin in Pickett State Forest over on the Tennessee side. Collier, bandy, grand are all worth the drive from Somerset.

if you leave somerset and head east on hwy 192 you'll come to a parking area at the intersection with 1193...from there you can go south and do a nice ride around the lake, or head north into the cane creek area...i really enjoy the north side, especially dropping down into the rockcastle narrows...
