Join us on a weekend of day hiking in Red River Gorge. The hikes are for intermediate hikers, they are not suited for beginners. The trails are rated as moderate but there are steep cliffs, no handrails, not suitable if heights are challenging for you. A section of Auxier Ridge is narrow, some areas on the trails require sure- footing. We will be staying in a beautiful 3 level cabin full of amenities.

We will see some of the best landmarks in RRG, there will be plenty of opportunities for great views.
