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.

Love this hike. Took my 4 yr old at the time and he loved the falls and the creek area so much! For a pregnant wife and 4 year old the trail is def moderate but take your time and it is so much fun. Went during a drizzle and there was enough tree cover that we didn't get too wet... you know.. before we played in the water. Will do again!
