This 3 day trip to Red River Gorge is an intermediate backpacking trip.  Campsites are first come first serve so we will plan to leave Indianapolis about 9am on Friday, April 26, 2019, from a carpool location TBD based upon participants who sign up.

The plan is to hike the Rough Trail starting from near Angel Windows and setting up camp somewhere along the trail near the Sheltowee Trace trail intersection (approximately 5-6 miles).  Be prepared for a change in plans depending upon availability of campsites.  We will then setup camp and prepare a campfire and dinner.  If time allows, we may go for a short hike exploring the area.

Saturday morning, we will pack up early and be out of the campsite by 10am and hike to a primitive campsite located near Chimney Top Rock.  We will be backtracking on part of the trail we came in on but head to Chimney Rock and set up camp in a primitive campground. Then we can explore the area and back to camp to prepare dinner and relax for the evening.  

Sunday morning we will pack up after breakfast and hike back to the van and head to Miguel’s for pizza before heading home.  We should be able to arrive back in Indy by 7pm.  Sooner depending upon when we pack up and head back to the van Sunday morning and after lunch.

The trip fee includes transportation in the club van, 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners on the trail and other fees. Meals in route and post hike at Miguel’s are at participant’s expense.


All trip participants must fill out and submit a CIWC Medical Form  and Long Waiver Form.
