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.

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.
