Hey all,

I just added some more hikes for January and February and wanted to get your input about later in the spring. I have set up a schedule where the first Saturday of the month has an all day hike (e.g.. First Spring Trail, Good Spring Loop, LBL) with a shorter hike on Sunday afternoon a few weeks later. It would be fun to drive a little bit further to get to someplace a little different. Would anyone be up for Red River Gorge, Cumberland Falls, Bernheim Forest? It only takes a few hours to reach some really cool areas in Tennessee (Fierry Gizzard, Cloud Land Forest, Bear Waller Gap). In the past there has been low turnout for anything beyond an hour so I figured I'd start a discussion and see what everyone thinks.

We tried a RRG trip back in October but it rained like 40 days in a row....if we can get back in shape, I think I could talk the wife into a weekend trip...my brother-in-law hangs out here too...maybe get him convinced...

I'd be interested in travelling farther to hike new places.
I saw RRG in late fall and am hoping to see it in early spring.

I've never been to RRG but really want to go. I know Owen took a day trip up there but most people go for the weekend. It might be worth getting a camping trip set up for late spring.

I've been to Gray's Arch both times I was there. I'll have to dig out my map and see what we were planning on doing.

there are plenty of trails, arches, climbs and campgrounds. I enjoyed a 6 mile loop that included courthouse rock and double arch. It follows the auxier ridge trail.

RRG is cool for hiking. If you are going to travel that far, you might want to think about the Big South Fork. The are some great hikes and wonderdful overlooks.
I would definately be up for some of the hikes you mentioned.

BSF is Super Cool. IMO, Honey Creek loop is one of the best hikes in the southeast. Way less people in BSF than RRG. Great facilities as well. Multisport-paradise. Canoe,hike,mountain bike, rock climbing
