Been here several times in the past many years, always fun to go there and walk around the trails, although not as much fun after working 20 days straight, walking 10+ miles every day, but still enjoyable..

The natural bridge was quite scenic. But do take the sky lift up, and hike down if you are planning on doing some hiking. The views are wonderful from the top of the bridge. If you hike down, be sure to wear good hiking boots and take some water, although it is only 1 1/4 miles down, it took us... More

We drove here on our way to West Virginia from Lexington as we had read about the Red River Gorge as a must see attraction. We were really disappointed. Although the gorge appears to be very deep, the vegetation obscured any views of both the river and the gorge itself. The Daniel Boone forest is very beautiful but as we... More

We have been here over a dozen of times so far in 2015. Cliff jumping, hiking, camping swimming, dirt bike riding. amazing place if you take the time to go through the trails and look for places.

The gorge provided some easy trails and spectacular views that made for good day hiking. We walked across the sky bridge and then back under it. Also, check out Chimney Tops for a nearly 360-degree view of the gorge.

Ample car parking. beautiful views although mostly of trees in the Daniel Boone National Forest. An interesting natural bridge makes for great photo opportunities. Cable car not good if scared of heights although only the last bit is high.

Unique scenic and hiking area for this area of the country. You want to get to some of the more popular areas early to get a parking spot so it's not for solitude seeking but the views are awesome.

My girlfriend has been to the gorge many times for day trips with family and friends. This is my third time, but I was really young the first time and second time we didn't go on top of the gorge. WOW did I miss a lot those trips. This trip we walked up the original trail and checked out most... More

We were camping at the Zilpo Recreation area and took a day trip here. We started with the Natural Bridge State Park which is a must see in this area. The park is right off the Parkway and I suggest stopping at the rest area to get a map of the area. The park has a lodge, restaurant, campground but... More

A great place to spend the day, if you are a hiker. Great Trails, with a lot of sandstone rock formations.
