The Angel Windows Trail at Red River Gorge in Pine Ridge, Kentucky is an easy 0.6 mile out-and-back hike that leads out to a cliff formation with natural cutouts in the rock cliffs, known as Angel Windows.

The windows are small - no more than 4 feet tall and a couple of feet wide, but they're a unique formation along the cliff. If you hike beyond the Angel Windows, you'll continue hiking along a cliff until the trail seemingly ends.

Horse head rock: At the Angel Windows is an arch that looks just like a horse's head. See the 3rd picture in this album.

Dogs are allowed on this trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
