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.

Great trail for a picnic and a hike. Wonderful views, cliff hangs, a water fall and a rock bridge.

Popular and often busy hiking trail. Easy hike once you have descended into gorge. Water levels low in Summer and Fall season so Creation Falls is a dribble. Nice hike. No cliffs. See pics at http://www.instagram.com/hikingandexploring
