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!

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. Choose to stay in the Gorge area overnight or drive to Corbin and stay there, but either way, you’ll have a blast exploring the natural beauty of Kentucky. Does this sound like a weekend road trip you’d want to take? Let us know in the comments and be sure to share your adventure with us if you take it!
