Had a great long weekend hiking in the Daniel Boone National Forest. 14 miles of hiking in 2 days! Highlights were the Daniel Boone Hut; Skybridge; Gray's Arch. When they say Rough Trail they mean it!

My wife and I spent two days at the Red River Gorge and Daniel Boone National Forest. We are not campers: we stayed at a hotel a few miles away. But even just exploring in the daytime the area was beautiful. Rather than hike the Natural Bridge Trail, we took the skytram. Unless you just really want to do the... More

We have travelled through Kentucky and camped all over the state, this was our first time in the Daniel Boone National Forrest. First, I want to be clear this is not a review of the forest. The forest stretches from Tennessee to West Virginia and we were in the north central part. Secondly, when we visited here the campgrounds were... More

Beautiful scenery. Get a free trail map from one of the local gas stations. Trail maps state plan for about 45 minutes for each mile hiking and I would definitely agree with that. Trails are well marked. Chimney Rock was by far the easiest shortest trail we hiked. Dogs are welcome which is a plus for us. The scenic highway... More

I was on a road trip from PA to western KY, and on my way back, I made a last minute decision to check out some of the scenery and see how the hiking stacks up here to other national parks. This comes up on GPS maps as a beautiful stretch of greenery, and my only criticsm would be they... More

This National Forest and the geological site are really one of a kind. We camped at the Whittleton Campground in the State Park, which is near the Natural Bridge and some of the other cool State Park trails. We found the state park trails much more crowded than the trails in the national forest/geological area . . . but this... More

Beautiful National Forest. There is a lot to see and do and everything is beautiful and clean. You definitely need to get to the natural bridge.
