Sandy, hillside trail with some wet areas and some rocky areas.
Fun little trail. My six year old loved scrambling on the rocks.
This is a nice easy hike, even in the winter. Here is a short video I made when I hiked the trail in February of 2016.
Short and easy trail with a good payoff. Well traveled and no problems navigating. The trail continues for a short way past the arch, if you are interested in extending the trek just a little further. Worth the time if you are in the area, but not a destination in my opinion.
This is a pretty cool short trail, however where most end at the windows you can slip thru the windows hang a hard left and continue along the edge of the ridge , you will eventually have to turn around as it doesn't loop but makes for a longer more technical experience. From here Chimney Top and Rough Trail is only a Stone throw away.
This is a very quick and easy trail, you don't even get too far from the road. However, it does provide you with pretty formation of the Angel's Windows, and is great for a day trip combined with some other short trails like Sky Bridge.
Overall - Quick, Easy, Beautiful
The "Angel Windows" trail is located in Pine Ridge, KY. It is very easy to find, GPS is %100 accurate. There is a decent amount of parking located at the trail-head. We saw a good amount of people here getting a quick look. (You can probably walk out, get pics, and walk back in 25-30 mins)
This was more interesting than I expected it would be. A very short and easy walk from the trail-head leads downward towards the "Angel Windows" which are two arches right next to each other.
If you keep going, you'll see a giant cliff and ledge with trickling water. You can't really call this a "waterfall" but it's nice to stand under after being outside in the heat. (It can get humid as it's on the way down toward the valley)
Great easy trail off the road to do after hiking a longer trail if you have time and the energy.
Nice little hike to see a really neat rock formation. (Angels Windows) There are some really neat rock over hangings on the trail to the windows. Passed the Windows you can continue to walk a little bit and see a 'Waterfall" if the water is high enough. Took my daughter on this trail and she enjoyed it.
This narrow, hillside trail end at natural rick formations which can be walked through. On the rainy day we hiked it some portions were muddy. Good trail for kids.
The Angel Windows trail leads to a pair of small arches alongside each other. The feature is easily accessible and serves as a nice way to end a day of more strenuous hiking in the gorge.
