Re: Red River Gorge in Kentucky

Thanks, Paul! I really appreciate it. Could we make a loop starting down by the Koomer Ridge Campground to the Rough Trail west to Pinch em Tight Trail and Buck Trail? I found a book: Hiking Kentucky's Red River Gorge by Sean Patrick Hill. I'm going to get that. I was half expecting a book by Jim Du...

Red River Gorge in Kentucky

I'm looking at doing a 3 night, 4 day backpacking trip to this place in the Daniel Boone National Forest in late October or early November.

Does anyone have any experience with the Red River Gorge and routes? Thanks.

Re: Porkies Trip Next Weekend, any joiners?

Escarpment Trail (camped on the ridge) to Government Peak Trail to North Mirror Lake Trail (camped at Mirror Lake) to Correction Line Trail to Big Carp River Trail (camped at 1st of t...

It's great to read The Greenstone. I've forwarded this to several people who are planning trips this year.

Re: What national parks haven't you visited, but would like to?

Great pictures of the Porkies. I thought the descriptions and observations were completely accurate. I would add that the Lake Superior Trail was nearly impassably muddy even in mid summer. I would not take that trail again. I also agree that the Porkies are like IR but steeper trails. But the bigg...

Re: What national parks haven't you visited, but would like to?

Thank You for the Info. This summers mission, visit that 'campsite on the ridge' location. WoW. Was that night 1, 2, or 3 location. I noticed that map does not offer Topographic lines. Although not terribly important, I'd like to know what kind of elevation changes to expect. Glad you like the info...

Re: What national parks haven't you visited, but would like to?

This is a map of the November 6-8, 2015 backpacking trip to the Porcupine Mountains. We started at the Summit Peak scenic area and hiked down to Mirror Lake the first night. It rained and then snowed overnight, but there was just a trace of snow on the tent when we got up. We got a late start and le...
