Chimney Top Overnight Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This overnight loop traverses the south side of the Red River Gorge. Start on the Koomer Ridge Trail, visiting Hidden Arch, then dip into the Right Fork Chimney Top Creek watershed and spend here your first night. Next, head west along Buck Ridge to join the Sheltowee Trace. Shortly, leave the Trace and visit Grays Arch.
From the arch, undulate back eastward in and out of watersheds to rejoin the Trace, which leads to lower Right Fork Chimney Top Creek, where you spend your second night. From here, make a steep climb to Koomer Ridge, then stroll along this ridgeline to complete your loop. The waterside campsites feature hemlock woods and a clear stream. The trail mileages each day are not long, but do involve multiple ups and downs. Outstanding Features: Hidden Arch, Grays Arch, views, and Chimney Top Creek"
