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.

Beautiful lush trail with lots of creeks and a waterfall. The water is shallow so it's perfect for swimming or just cooling off. Quite a few steps, dips, and inclines. Takes one or two hours depending on how fast you're hiking.

Very disappointing "falls" after a very tedious climb; we were expecting a larger waterfall. Very pretty landscape. Have tons of water on hand! Very hot in the peak of summer/July.

Absolutely one of my favorite places in the world. I love this trail. A waterfall, and a natural rock arch, I'm under 1.5 miles, can't beat it.
