Take This Easy Hikes Road Trip In Kentucky And Try 5 Short Trails In One Weekend

You could spend a lifetime hiking around the great state of Kentucky, but unfortunately, most of us only have a free weekend here and there. In those two free days, you want to pack as much outdoor adventure in as possible and see a beautiful variety of Kentucky natural wonders. You can always choose to hit up one, day-long trail on this adventure or you can take a road trip to some easy hikes in Kentucky and fit in several in one weekend. On this weekend getaway, you’ll start in the Red River Gorge area and end up in Corbin. You get to take some scenic roads in between and you’ll enjoy a bit of everything, from waterfalls to natural bridges. Take a look at the map and directions, change it up a bit if you need to, and hit the road!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

These quick and easy hikes in Kentucky are ideal for a weekend adventure and you’ll be able to see and do so much in a short period of time.
