Courthouse Rock and Auxier Ridge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The loop to Courthouse Rock offers the stunning cliff-top views that make the Red River Gorge famous. From the highest points, you will see the Gorge itself, as well as vistas to Ravens Rock, Haystack Rock, and Double Arch. Half of the hike descends into the lush forest beneath some magnificent sandstone cliffs, and the second half follows Auxier Ridge through a recovering burn. Autumn colors make this hike even more spectacular, and spring is an excellent time to spot yellow and pink lady’s slipper orchids."
