Red River Gorge Kentucky
I just returned from a long Mother’s Day weekend in the Red River Gorge Kentucky, which is part of the Daniel Boone National Forest in southeastern Kentucky. I had heard great things about the place, and it sure did not disappoint. Anyone who loves outdoor adventure travel will love this prime spot less than an hour away from Lexington, Kentucky.
The first post will be this photo essay, which gives a slight taste of what the national forest and gorge is about, but I am excited to bring much more of this tremendous spot. Future posts will highlight specific adventure activities like zip lining, hiking, scenic drives, and tips on where to stay, what to do, and where to go. I packed a lot into a couple of days, but I would love to return and do some more hiking and perhaps some kayaking or canoeing on the Red River.
I was also overwhelmed by the friendliness of the people that I met during my weekend. Store owners, managers proprietors, zip line guides, people I passed on the hiking trails and at the overlooks on the scenic drives were all incredibly nice and welcomed me with smiles and waves. Special shout out to the people at Red River Gorge Cabins and zip lines who were especially hospitable during my stay and were extremely helpful in planning my explorations.
Get ready for some upcoming posts on Red River Gorge!
