The "Colts Cemetery" or "Cotes Cemetery" is located between Short Town, Kentucky and Colts, Kentucky on Highway 38. The name of the road that this cemetery is off of is called both Cotes Road and Colts Road depending upon what map you look at.

If you are travelling east on Highway 38 towards Virginia, then immediately after passing through Short Town the road will begin to curve to the left. In the middle of the curve there is a narrow, two lane bridge on the left hand side of the road that goes over the river. Turn left onto this bridge. The road will dead end at a T intersection on the other side bridge. Turn left at the T intersection. After turning left, you will be driving parallel to (and between) the river and railroad tracks. You can take the immediate, first or the second road on the right. Both of these roads go over the railroad tracks and connect to a road on the other side of the tracks that runs parallel to the tracks. My suggestion is to take the first right since it is a much easier grade over the railroad tracks. If you take the first right, then immediately after crossing the railroad tracks you will need to make a left hand turn. Follow this road a short distance until it comes to a T intersection. At the T intersection take a right hand turn. Follow this road as it moves from pavement to gravel and winds up to the top of the hill. You are at Cotes/Colts Cemetery.

Once the road turns to grave it becomes a one lane road, so for the short distance to the top you need to be careful of traffic coming back down from the cemetery. There are no signs indicating the name of the cemetery.
