“The epitome of wilderness hiking in Kentucky through the Swift Camp Creek Gorge.”— Chris Chaney
Miles later the trail climbs out of the gorge to gain Sky Bridge Ridge and KY 715. There is only one other trail access along the way at Wildcat Trail.
Stunning scenery and true remoteness make for a memorable experience.
You can do this an out-and-back, a shuttled hike, or a loop by incorporating the paved KY 715 and gravel Rock Bridge Road. It can also be combined with Rough Trail for an east-west traverse of the Red River Gorge.
