Since I have worked here at Five Star Cabin Rental I have been asked countless times “Are you familiar with the area?” Each time I explain that I was born and raised here in the Red River Gorge and NaturalBridge State Park area. That is always followed by “Can you tell me how to get to (insert trail name here)?” . None ever stop to think about how the different weather conditions may affect the views or the experience of some of the other trails in the Red River Gorge.
The wintertime in the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State park is absolutely beautiful. After we have receive a little bit of snow my favorite places to go are Sky Bridge and Natural Bridge. The high elevation of both places give you the picture perfect view of all the snow covered hills and trees. Sky Bridge is a very easy hike at only .17 mile and takes maybe 30 minutes to walk. For the Natural Bridge you can take the Original Trail. This trail take approximately 45 minutes and it about 1.7 miles
Spring will be here before long and we tend to get plenty of rain which is great for the two waterfalls that are located in the Red River Gorge. They are Creation Falls and Kaner Falls. You can get to the Creation falls by taking the Rock Bridge Loop Trail #207. Kaner Falls is a little harder to get to. It is located off the Swift Camp Creek Trail.
In the summer after you have been exploring the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Park you should check out Jump Rock. Jump Rock is located off the Sheltowee Trace Suspension Bridge Trail. There you can go to the top of the rock and jump into the water below and swim. It is a nice way to cool down on a hot day. While there you should venture out a little further and experience the Suspension Bridge.
No matter what time of year there is plenty of things to see and do here in the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Park area. To come and experience this beautiful area you need a cabin just as wonderful. Here at Five Star Cabin Rental we have the perfect cabin for you. We have something for everyone.
