Large, large area. Lots to do. If you like hiking, there's hundreds of options. If you like climbing, I think there's even more. Looks like people just set up shop on the side of the road and go boulder on random cliff faces. Feels like you're getting really far "away" when visiting Red River Gorge.

Chelsea's right, it's a great getaway spot. If you're a climber from the Kentucky/Ohio area, this place is your mecca.

Amazing natural wonder. Just went backpacking for the first time and had a blast. We picked up a trail map and that was super helpful to not get lost. There are signs on every trail with marked trees in case. We camped by a river on Rough Trail. It was the perfect weekend getaway for those loving the outdoors. Only 2.5 hours or less from Cincy which was nice.

I grew up backpacking here, and I have to say it evokes so much nostalgia. Breathtaking scenery, kind people, and some of the best climbing in the Midwest. It's a great place to go for a night or a week. I've been going down for 16 years, and I still find new trails and wonders every time.

Loved our three days at Red River Gorge. So much hiking and so much beauty. We enjoyed our many hikes, and our stops at the local brewery, Sky Bridge Station!
