Rock Bridge Trail is one of the most scenic trails in Red River Gorge, including the arch (the "rock bridge") for which the trail is named, and a beautiful waterfall on the way to the arch. Highlights include rich vegetation, hiking alongside a creek for much of the the trail, a natural arch that actually spans the creek at the apex of the trail, a scenic waterfall, a small clearing for picnicing, and an access point to other trails in Red River Gorge. The trail is perfect in good weather, beautiful in all weather, but can be muddy/slippery in rain and snow. Trailhead located at the end of a 3 mile gravel road.

Incredible views. Majestic waterfall and natural bridge. The road was closed, so we hiked 3.1 miles to get to the trail and to get out. Worth it.

Went just when the last of the fall color was there. Quiet all around, was the only one on the trail. Brought my pup and he absolutely loved it. The water was low, so no waterfalls but still beautiful.

One of my favorites at the Gorge. Deep wooded trail, Creek and falls.

This is a nice but short hike and is heavily used so expect to run into a lot of people and lots of children and women hiking with sandles on. So you might be held up by a group of people moving very slow through the hike. There is some sharp elevation changes as you hike down to Creation Falls and the Rock Bridge area as well as back up as you move back to the trailhead on the opposite end.

Short, but absolutely gorgeous! The Rock Bridge is amazing. Stop and do it even if you have something else planned that day.

Great for a short hike with an awesome attraction in the middle- creation falls. I take my friends when they visit, pretty much anyone can do this trail. Love it.
