I didn't have but a few hours to spend at the Red River Gorge, but I think I made the most of it. The winding, country roads were peaceful. There were plenty of pull offs with interesting views. The Gladie Cultural Environment Center was staffed with knowledgeable staff and walking the grounds was a marvelous stroll into the past. When... More

My husband and I took a weekend trip here with our Miata. There are beautiful things to see, many arches and natural beauty along with some great winding, curvy roads that are a blast to drive. Nada tunnel road is fun, with a one way tunnel that can be a bit 'small' feeling. I wouldn't want to meet someone halfway... More

The gorge is a great place to go for a weekend getaway adventure. I was living in Cincinnati and made the trip out to the gorge, only a 2 hour drive away. There's a lot of nice cabins available to rent for the weekend! (we stayed in one of the Natural Bridge Cabins- great service and amenities available). Our cabin... More

I've never been down at Red River Gorge before, but heard great things about it. We decided to do a last minute weekend camping trip last weekend and chose this spot for our destination. I have to say, this was probably the cheapest trip we've taken in the last 2 years. We live about 3 hours away, so only used... More

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.
