Great trail, my 1st trail when I started hiking in red river gorge in 2011! Awesome over look, worth the hike and not hard to find unmarked trail

Awesome trail. Easy to miss the right turn up the hill here it is not marked. Careful climbing this! Very rewarding at the top, I enjoyed the rock house/ waterfall just further along that same trail on past the staircase.

One of, if not my favorite place in the gorge. Use caution especially if conditions are wet.
