The Red River Gorge is a canyon system on the Red River in east-central Kentucky. Geologically, it is part of the Pottsville Escarpment. Much of the Gorge is located inside the Daniel Boone National Forest & has been subsequently reserved as the Red River Gorge Geological Area, an area of around 29,000 acres. Kentucky's Natural Bridge State Park is immediately adjacent to this area, featuring one of the largest natural bridges in the Red River Gorge.
Red River Gorge, Kentucky - designated as a National Scenic Byway, and the exquisite beauty of its dramatic landscape, including its awesome arches and breathtaking sandstone cliffs, is the result of millions of years of sculpting by wind and water.
