The Red River Gorge National Geological Park is located near Slade, Kentucky and was the main attraction on our camping/hiking weekend.

The Gorge is a 35 mile ring of sheer rock walls with nearly 70 miles of hiking inside the ring and many many natural rock houses and arches (or natural bridges).

The scenery was wonderful and the park is one of the best that I have been to in the Southeastern United States. BUT–you cannot see it all in a day. We packed a huge amount into a day and only saw a few of the arches. You really need at least FOUR days to visit in full and a week if you want to “experience” it with the hiking trails.

We should have camped here as there were many places along the Red River to pitch camp and enjoy the scenery.
