The Whistling Arch Trail at Red River Gorge in Pine Ridge, Kentucky is an easy 0.6 mile out-and-back trail that leads out to Whistling Arch and back.

Whistling Arch is small - maybe 10 feet wide by 4 feet tall, but it lies within a massive cliff overhang. The trail has a few different view points, but some of them are extremely dangerous to get to.

Viewpoints: There's a viewpoint behind the large cliff formation with views of the surrounding hillsides. The furthest viewpoint (and the better of the viewpoints) lies at the edge of a cliff on the opposite side of the cliff. To get there, the trail leads along a 60+ foot cliff with no fence or handrails. The trail is skinny and to the side of the trail is a hill - there's also a stump of a tree you need to get around that lies in the middle of the trail - next to this 60+ foot cliff. Hike these viewpoints at your own risk.

Dogs are allowed on this trail. There's also a campsite on the trail with a fire pit.

Before you leave...

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

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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!
