Although every time we went to hike during our trip, it rained, we did get to some awesome trails. If you want some quick hikes, close to the road with inclement weather, stop at Angel Windows, Whistling Arch, Sky Bridge or Gladie Center. If you go to Whistling Arch, make sure you stay on the trail a bit further. You... 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

Amazing beautiful place, there is something for everyone, short hiking trails to day long trails. The scenic by-way is a great drive. You must check out Miguel's Pizza when in the area.

There are many hiking trails in the Gorge that go from easy to hard. Most are only 2 to 3 miles long but you will see so many beautiful landmarks that it's hard to not get lost in the beauty of this place.

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

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.
