Red River Gorge, Courthouse Rock Trail

Nada Lombard Post Office, Kentucky, United States
Hiking | 3.3 miles
On the way to Cincinnati, stopped at Red River Gorge for a hike.  Hadn't been there in over 20 years - we used to go there in high school.  Got there late-ish (11am or so), and the parking lot was almost full.  Lots of people on the trail, but wasn't ever walking single-file.  If I had more time, would have gone a bit further.

Doe Run Lake perimeter trail
by KYPetalPusher on Nov 16, 2009
Summit Hills Heights, Kentucky, United States
Hiking | 2.7 miles
Excellent rugged hike at a serene location tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.   Varied terrain that provides a nice workout.  You have to cross Bullock Pen creek around the backside of the lake so waterproof boots would be recommended.  The north side of the lake is a gravel service road that you walk back around to the parking lot.

Sunny but cold winter day wandering around Devou Park.  We had 11 hiking diehards come out and brave the weather.  We hiked much farther than anticipated but we all agreed it was worth it.  :)

Hiking | 1.4 miles
Really nice looped trail in the Red River Gorge National Park in Pine Ridge, KY.I traveled up here geocaching, There is a bunch of earth caches in this area (There is 3 earth caches on this trail). The trail is not all that difficult, on the first part of the hike it is mostly all down hill, but on the way back it's mostly all uphill, but it is gradual and not...

River Styx Spring Trail, Mammoth Cave National Park

Mammoth Cave, Kentucky, United States
Hiking | 1.9 miles
Since we were not sure whether the Mammoth Cave National Park is Central Time, we got up an hour earlier (by accident) and expected the cave was in EST.  We arrived at the park two hours earlier than expected. As our spelunking tour was at 230pm, we still had time for other activities so we decided to have a short walk along the River Styx Spring Trail. This is a short wheelchair accessible trail...

Today is Easter.  We just had a big breakfast, and decided to go out hiking and hopeful of finding some morels.  This is our first time on this trail, and also Ailis' first time hiking.  She slept the whole time until the last 10 minutes or so.  All in all, it was a great hike!!  Oh yeah.. we found morels!!

Chimney Top Road Trail E
by Euro-werks on May 23, 2011
Pine Ridge, Kentucky, United States
Hiking | 0.6 miles
This trail starts off at a single parking area with a post to identify it by.  The trail meanders through a mixed forest before a fairly drastic descent  down a narrow ridge.  Be careful at a sharp downhill right hand turn.  Going straight will put you at a 35 foot vertical.  Drop off a small (4-5 foot ledge) and descend even further to a nearly vertical, root covered gully that is the...

A short 1-mile hike to a small waterfall. Great rock formations and opportunities for rock climbing... GPS lost connection on the way back because we were under the cliffs and I forgot to reconnect, sorry!

3 Bridges Trail, Carter Caves, Ky

Wolf, Kentucky, United States
Hiking | 3.5 miles
This is a very well maintained and well marked trail. There are a few places where the elevation changes quickly, but none are really that hard to climb. Allow plenty of time for this trail because there is so much interesting stuff to see. You can park at the welcome center, and they make trail maps available there.

Hiking | 3.8 miles
Knowing that it was going to rain the entire weekend, I took off work on Friday (April 30, 2010) to go hiking.  I ended up at Grayson Lake State Park.  Other than the golf course, Lick Falls is the only trail they have, besides the .8 mile Beech - Hemlock Trail.  (The 2 can be combined for an extended hike).  The waterfall is nice, but difficult to get a picture of without...
