What a beautiful place! We hiked to Sky Bridge and were not disappointed, amazing ! so many arches and awesome views. A great place to get away and leave all the stress and noise behind.

A neat place to hike to a tremendous view from the top of a natural rock bridge. Beautiful any time of the year. Many also camp in the area. A neat area to enjoy nature.

We visited relatives in the area and they led us through Red River Gorge to Sky Bridge. Such a breathtakingly beautiful area!! The one way tunnel was truly unique. We stopped at several overlooks to observe wild turkeys, hike on some trails, and explore some rocky areas. We were there in March 2013 and are planning another trip back.

After spending a few hours at Natural Bridge (taking the chairlift to the top), we drove over to the Red River Gorge area to drive through the amazing one way tunnel and then drive the loop through the beautiful forest area. We stopped to hike down to the suspension bridge and to climb out on several large rocks overlooking the... More

Any time you can spend outdoors appreciating what God created is time well spent, and this area does not disappoint. Hiked here a few times, and the scenery is absolutely lovely, with the overlooks stunning. Plenty of space to lose yourself, and just enjoy what is around you. There are a number of well marked trails that correspond with the... More

Enjoyed a beautiful drive with friends and taking photos of the Fall foliage in October. The leaves and views were breath taking. Good roads and there is a great ranger station that offers maps and lots of information about this geological area and clean bathrooms. They also offer a variety of movies about the area. You can spend as little... More

Our journey to the Gorge was primarily to enjoy the scenic byway drive and take in the fall colors during a weekend day in late October. The fall colors were spectacular and worth the drive but we were disappointed in the lack of places to pull off the road and take in the scenery. The area map shows there are... More

BEAUTIFUL place. We went in the fall and camped at Whittleton State Park. The geological area can either be hiked into from that campsite or you can leave your car at one of the trailheads. The hikes were a great length/difficulty for a family of general fitness. Serious adventure seekers might be a bit disappointed with the difficulty level but... More

Took a drive through the gorge on a Saturday afternoon. Stopped at the Gladie Environmental and Learning Center. It does not take a lot of time to go through but it is very informative. During the fall there is a lot of traffic, take your time. The colors are beautiful.

We LOVE going to RRG! I think the best thing about this area is the fact that is has not been commercialized like so many "natural" places have. If you do not want to ride the sky lift, or if it is closed, you can park at the lodge and start the trails up to Natural Bridge from there. You... More
