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 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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
