Trails of the Red

Welcome to TRAIL TALK by Tread the Red! This page serves as trail inspiration! I will work on uploading short “trail information” videos that highlight the different trails throughout the Red River Gorge. These are not meant to be used for navigation – I just want to show “highlights” of each trail and basic information so that everyone can get an idea about if a trail is something they would like to hike or not!

Below is a work-in-progress collection of “TRAIL TALK by Tread the Red” videos to get you inspired and ready to get out there and explore the Gorge!

Purchasing a trail guide book, looking up topography, and having a hard copy of a map – especially when you are trying unofficial trails – is key!
