Overview. This is one of the most popular hikes in Red River Gorge thanks to its views and accessibility. When I'm asked for a hike with views of the gorge, this is the first one I recommend.
Trailhead. From KY-15, turn onto Tunnel Ridge Road and follow it to its end. [map]
Trail navigation. This is an easy out and back, as you'll stay on the ridgeline throughout the hike and few side trails exist. Follow the trail out to its end at mile 2.1 and retrace your steps.
CAUTION - CLIFFS. Many hikers have died or been seriously injured falling from cliffs in Red River Gorge. Stay back.
