Trails in the Red River Gorge"The book Hiking the Red, a complete trail guide to Kentucky's Red River Gorge, provides an excellent description of the activities one can find in the Daniel Boone National Forest (DBNF). The authors suggest "popular activities include hiking, camping, picnicking, hunting, fishing, boating, swimming, horseback riding, bicycling, rock climbing, spelunking, bird watching, photography, nature study, and more" (p. 14). The DBNF contains an estimated 500 miles of trails through rugged terrain made of sandstone cliffs and exposed limestone rock faces. The authors remind us that this trail network is larger than any other National Forest in Kentucky, and most importantly, that it takes fewer than six hours for most of us to reach this destination."
