Clifton Gorge has always been a beautiful place for a hike, but even more so in the winter. We went yesterday after weeks of unusually cold temperatures and several snowfalls, which created an awesome winter spectacle. We always start at the Eastern most point in the village of Clifton, just down from the Clifton Mill, which is a great place to visit. From there you get some great views of the gorge. Don't forget to stop at the point where one of Daniel Boone's companions leapt across the gorge to escape a band of irate Shawnee Indians.(of course that was a while ago, but clearly marked with a storyboard)
The round trip hike, including stopping for photos, and just looking around was about 4 hours.
I would recommend a hiking stick, especially with snow on the ground, as it can be quite slippery and oftentimes muddy.
