We appreciate your support to keep our small businesses open by following our State and Federal Safety Guidelines. Visit governor.ky.gov to see future updates. The Forest Service could close trails at their discretion.

The Red River Gorge and National Forest Trails are currently open to the public. Social gatherings are limited to no more than 10 people. Our Search and Rescue Team Members are volunteers, and appreciate all of the support you have shown them through the years. Please continue to be safe.

Most cabin owners and hotel/motels near the area are open and are diligently following the health and safety regulations set by our state.

Restaurants are open indoors at 25%, outdoor seating is available with spacing of 6 feet. Call ahead and carry out is a great way to minimize wait and have your own private picnic in the woods. Bars are closed, however several restaurants do offer drinks.

Face Coverings are required in all indoor areas and in outdoor areas where social distancing of 6 feet is not feasible.

Please make yourself aware of individual restaurant requirements. Some ask that you wait in the car for personal delivery to keep in compliance with local distancing rules.

We hope you will continue to come and run here and bring your family to visit the Gorge anytime. It’s a magical place to be.
