This short 0.2 mile out-and-back recording is a short trail at Red River Gorge National Geological Area in Pine Ridge, Kentucky that leads out to two campsites and a little lookout point of the surrounding hills at the end of the trail.

Parking can be found at the Rough Trail parking lot. The first campsite is visible from the parking lot, but there's a second campsite that sits further back hidden from view. You can fit at least two small tents in the campsite furthest back and you can fit at least 4 small tents in the first campsite.

The lookout point at the end of the trail gives you a nice view of the sunset and after-sunset colors in the evening sky.

Camping permits required: Camping permits are required and can be purchased at local gas stations and other shops in the area. A 1-night pass will cost $3. You can also purchase 3-night passes.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
