Red River Gorge for Dummies

In case you've never been to the RRG and you're curious what the paved roads look like around the area, check out the videos I got last weekend. The second one does have 5 miles of hard packed dirt/gravel at the end, but besides that, it will be a bore for true off road junkies. I took the video, so I'm posting it. I didn't do much editing but did point out a few points of interest along the way. They're both around 26/27 minutes a piece.

It is not the destination, it is the ride!

I had to look it up too. Kentucky - Daniel Boone National Forrest area. Have to add it to make a nice TN, WV loop.

There are some really good roads in the area as well as south and west of the Gorge area. Not to belittle the LARGE rock arches.

Hwy 52 from Beattyville to Irvine is nice and twisty, lots of elevation changes and forest.

One of my favorite destinations. Thanks for posting.

Next time you're out that way check out the S Tree section in the Daniel Boone, just to the SW of McKee.

Ride the "Hillbilly Triangle".......89 from Irvine to McKee, 587 over to Beattyville, then 52 back to Irvine.

Also 77 and 715 in the RRG

32 from Morehead to WV

There are more, but these are some of the best
