Kentucky - Red River Gorge

This event is hosted by Girls Who Hike Ambassador Amber Mudd! First attendees will receive a special Girls Who Hike giveaway before the hike starts. 

We will be hiking from the Auxier Ridge parking area to Courthouse Rock via Trail 204, then over to Double Arch via trail 203 and back to the parking area from trail 201. This will be about 5.5 to 6 miles. We will see Courthouse Rock, Haystack Rock, and Double Arch. There will be a planned break at Courthouse Rock for lunch, so bring a snack! This hike will give us spectacular views of the gorge and one of the best viewing vistas in the whole area.
