The Magnificent Overlook In Kentucky That’s Worthy Of A Little Adventure
Kentucky is a great place in which to embark on an adventure, whether it’s a simple hike or an off-the-grid camping trip. Our state provides opportunities, no matter what you’re looking to experience, and one of the best places to visit for an adventure is Red River Gorge. This incredible place can, of course, be dangerous as well, but there are plenty of hiking trails and views that are relatively easy, too. One of the easier trails that leads to a wonderful surprise is the Chimney Top Trail. This hike ends with a magnificent overlook that offers some of the best views of the Gorge and is definitely worthy of a little adventure.
