Hiking Kentucky's Red River Gorge is the definitive guide to trails in the Red River Gorge Geologic Area, Natural Bridge State Park, and Clifty Wilderness. The book showcases 25 of the best hikes in the Gorge, as well as a back-of-book bonus on nearby trails. Distinguished from other Red River Gorge guides, this book provides readers not only with detailed maps, sharp photos, and individual-trail details, but it also outlines definitive hikes—ways to explore the area and enjoy its flora, fauna, and history.
The easy-to-use layout treats each hike distinctly as its own adventure. Because of this, the routes are detailed with photographs, maps, trail gradient information and, most importantly, ratings for key elements that make a trail appealing to a wide variety of people. This allows the reader to make informed decisions about which trails they will want to hike and which ones will be appropriate for children. Further, readers will discover how to combine trails and routes for a great hiking day or backpacking trip. This book is ideal for people who�ve never been to the Gorge and for beginner hikers.
