I have not been on Chimney Top for years! It also has been awhile since I have taken our puppy on a hike. So I thought that this trail would be perfect because not only is it easy, it is also quick. Well, unless you decide to chill out at the overlook. Overlooks are like a campfire for me. I can just sit there and stare off into wonderland forever!
As we started on the trail I was so excited to see a paved path! I thought I could finally write that we have a trail that is wheelchair friendly! But it saddens me to say that it is not. The pavement turns rough and more like gravel and there are a couple hills that I think would be hard to push/pull someone. It is still a nice, easy, little hike, though.
You only have to walk .25 miles to see one of the most beautiful overlooks in the Red River Gorge.
As you can see from my pictures, the view is amazing! But even more important is that you can see those views at a comfortable distance from the edge. Please be safe y'all! Choose to get outdoors more and see this beautiful area we live in!
