It was a cool, quiet morning and I really wanted to get outside and hike, but I needed to get my flowerbeds ready for winter along with other yard work, housework and grocery shopping. So the decision was made and this was the perfect hike!
Short...which means I would still have the energy to do all the above.
Quick...so I would have the time to do all I'm wanting to get done. And then,
Beautiful...it's always a bonus when there is an arch or some type of natural sight to see. Plus it is fall and the leaves are finally starting to change.
This is a dirt trail that has a decline soon after you start. But it doesn't last long. The trail levels off and makes for a nice hike. I usually dread the trip back knowing it is uphill, but this wasn't bad at all. I didn't even need to stop for a breather!
The designs and natural carvings in the huge boulders are fascinating to look at. Some of them are big enough to sit in! Kids, young and old, would love this trail!
Don't just stop when you get to the windows, though. Walk thru and enjoy the sights on the other side! Even in doing this, my husband and I were back to our vehicle in less than 30 minutes.
This is a marked trail in the Red River Gorge/Daniel Boone National Forest. Pay attention to the white diamond marks on trees which verifies you are on the right trail.
So get outdoors and take a hike! Grab that camera, have fun and be safe!
