Red River Gorge

Fall for Riders and Drivers


With long, winding roads through Daniel Boone National Forest, riders and drivers will love hopping on and off these trails to take in spectacular vistas and gorgeous arches. This tour will take you top to bottom and all around Red River Gorge with stops at some great places for bites and brews.

Kickoff your weekend in style with a motor through Nada Tunnel and then up to Tarr Ridge. Once there, hop onto this unmarked trail for a short hike to a big-time view! Finish the day continuing the loop around the Gorge until you reach Sky Bridge Station.

Sky Bridge Station

If you’re hungry, I know a place:-) You can stop into Sky Bridge Station for a Kentucky craft beer or bourbon while enjoying a delicious meal. My pick is the Aztec quesadilla, but someday I’ll have one of their locally sourced, ultra-fresh burgers.

Here’s a great hike to get your day started. Stop in for a short walk out to a good-sized arch with a big-time view just beyond it.

Hike Up or Ride the Sky Lift to Natural Bridge

You can go full sweat by hiking the Original Trail or park and ride one of the area’s classic attractions - the Sky Lift. This chairlift will take you to and from the top of Natural Bridge to enjoy giant views from three rock outcroppings.

No visit to Red River Gorge is complete until you experience Miguel’s Pizza. Sure, the pizza is delicious, but really, this is a cultural treasure. While waiting for your order, take a look around and enjoy the community!
