Hiking the Red River Gorge

We are approaching a very busy and exciting Columbus day weekend here at Five Star Cabin Rental located in the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge Area. We haven’t had ideal weather this week however that could be used to your advantage this weekend. With the precipitation we have had the past couple of days the Creation Falls and Kaner Falls should be beautiful for the holiday weekend.

A lot of guest come in our office here at Five Star Cabin Rental and ask us what our favorite trails are in the Red River Gorge. They also ask about what are some of the more strenuous trails and which are easier. We always try to direct them to which trails we think would best for them. We always like to tell everyone about Sky Bridge, Chimney Top, and Gray’s Arch. We also tell them about the Natural Bridge State Park. I would like to introduce you to a few of the other favorite trails in the Red River Gorge.

With this being October and with all the leaves changing I wanted to introduce to one strenuous trail and then one that is easy that both offer breath taking views. The first would be Sheltowee Trace. This trail offers a variety of  “gems” that we have in the Red River Gorge. As you travel along the Sheltowee Trace Trail you will see Indian Arch, towering walls, and beautiful vistas.

Angel Windows is another popular trail in the Red River Gorge that is an easier hiking trail. The trail is only about a half mile and is level for the most part. Just past the arches there is a beautiful canyon that you can see.

October is a very busy month around the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge area. However during the week things slow down just a little. We still have some openings for the month of October. Be sure to check out our website at www.naturalbridgecabinrental.com.  We have a nice variety of cabins and chalets with hot tubs, pool tables, and fireplaces. We will be in the office tonight until 7pm. Also on our website we have an online chat where a vacation specialist is standing by to help you with any questions.
