Over the Mountains and Through the Woods: Hiking in the Gorge
Here at StayOver, we are extremely passionate about the outdoors. With wonderful views, like Natural Bridge (which offers the Skylift for access to all); amazing hikes, like Grey’s Arch; and skillful inclines, like Martin’s Fork – who can blame us?
Take a trip through the famous Nada Tunnel to access some of the area’s most famous hikes, and don’t forget to take some pictures! At 900 ft in length, 12 ft in width, and 13 ft in height – this marvelous manmade tunnel is referred to as the “Gateway to Red River Gorge”.
As a part of the National Register of Historic Places, the Red River Gorge Geological Area offers some of the best hiking trails in all of America with over 100 natural sandstone arches and countless miles of lush forest. At roughly 29,000 acres of land, there is so much to explore – gorgeous waterfalls, humble creeks, ancient rock shelters, beautiful wildlife, and extensive mountainous paths are just outside of your cabin door!
Here at StayOver, we have many properties that offer private hiking and exploring. From our 150+ acres with 7 marked trails at Creekview Cabins to the highly secluded 45+ acres with 3 marked trails at Mill Creek Point – we have something for everyone.
