“Red Trail is a great 4-mile loop with an incredible view of the Kentucky R. and scenery throughout.”— Chris Chaney
At the bottom of the descent, there is a quick side trip to an overlook above the Kentucky River palisades. Catch your breath and begin the long winding return to the parking lot. When you think it's over you'll have another climb. Or two.
This is a great run not too far from the maddening crowds of Lexington.
