Trail shared by Chris Chaney

Yet another Red River Gorge ridge run, but complete with amazing views and great terrain.

Runner Notes

Rooty and rocky in places with a slight gain, makes a nice ridge run.

Description

From Sheltowee Trace/Pinch Em Tight to Rough Trail #221 this ridge trail provides more loop options when running from the Grays Arch area.

There's not a whole lot to say about Rush except you can escape from Rough Trail if you don't want to do another descent and associated climb, or you can loop it up and do some figure-8's to make things interesting on a longer run.
