“The epitome of wilderness running in Kentucky through the Swift Camp Creek Gorge.”— Chris Chaney
Some sections are rooty and rocky. There are some sections of trail on the top edge of cliffs over the stream.
Miles later the trail climbs out of the gorge to gain Sky Bridge Ridge and KY 715. There is only one other trail access along the way at Wildcat Trail.
Stunning scenery and true remoteness make for a memorable experience.
You can do this an out-and-back, a shuttled run, or a loop by incorporating the paved KY 715 and gravel Rock Bridge Road. It can also be combined with Rough Trail for an east-west traverse of the Red River Gorge.
