Rough Trail Ft 221 Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Rough Trail, without a doubt, lives up to its name. That said, it is also likely the single-best long trail in the whole of the Red River Gorge. To do the whole trail demands endurance, as the path climbs no less than five ridges. Still, it can be done in a single day, or it can be tackled as a backpacking adventure."
--Sean Patrick Hill, Hiking Kentucky's Red River Gorge (Menasha Ridge Press).
