Hi everyone...

I am from Dayton, Ohio, and heard about RRG through a friend. I am thinking of taking my honeymoon down in that area, the first week of August of this year. We would like to stay in a log cabin/cottage. Not like a lodge type deal though, my fiance wants a whole separate little building.

Anyways, I stumbled across this community, and wondered if y'all could give me some advice??
I know little to nothing about the area, except it's been recommended.

Red River Gorge Trail Crew
The Great Outdoors of Kentucky
Wasting time on the computer AGAIN? Get to the Red River Gorge! We are individual volunteers that get together once each month to add value to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Some projects we walk the trails, trim back brush, use crosscut saws to remove fallen trees, or just plain move dirt. Other times we are building bridges, learning traditional outdoors type skills, and creating brand new trails. Every once in a while we even decide not to do anything extremely productive and knock off early to get in some R&R. The pot luck dinner around the campfire on Saturday evening is probably my favorite time of each project.

Most of the outings run on the second Saturday of the month. Some people arrive Friday night and camp out at the site while others come by on Saturday morning. Getting done early usually means jumping in the river for a cool swim, taking a canoe trip down the Red, or spending Sunday morning hiking to a unique, rarely visited area of the Gorge.

During the course of a weekend, there is always a niche to be filled by everyone. One of the things I like most is the level of diversity and acceptance -- each person goes along as they are, at their own pace, in the best way they can contribute. Accomplishing the "goal" at hand is very important, but the pure enjoyment of being out in nature is always paramount.
-- Jerry Neff --

Work hard -- play hard. Enjoy life. No Problem!

Here is the link to the site. If anyone is interested in signing up and going to the next meeting let me know. Im planning on going. http://www.gorgecrew.com/

National Trails Day [27 May 2004|12:54pm]
[ mood | busy ]

It's that time of year again; National Trails Day is less
than two weeks away. It's that day when we join thousands of other trail folks around the nation to celebrate the great system of trails we use to access our nation's backcountry.

The 2004 National Trails Day theme is "Trails and Health…a
Natural Connection". I could not think of a more fitting premise; hiking backcountry trails in the shade of an oxygen rich forest is very healthful for both body and mind. Joining in with a trails service group adds a heart healthy social connection and the feeling of pride in keeping our trails safe and accessible for everyone.

Need more incentive; well, we have some cool SWAG for our NTD
Volunteers. We are giving away National Trails Day t-shirts, Thorlos socks, Natrapel bug spray, Tender After Bite sing kill, Royal Robins, Galyons, EMS carabineer key rings. This year Phillip Galls Outfitters of Lexington is joining in by advertising for NTD Volunteers and adding several of their retail items to our Trails Day celebration rewards. (More Goodies) After a big day on the trail we will gather for the evening festivities including the awarding the freebees and a
pre-opening tour of the new Gladie Environmental and Cultural
Learning Center, Hal Rogers will be cutting the ribbon the following Monday. We will have our usual big potluck supper and campfire social. Free camping is provided for anyone wanting to stay over.

Come join us, sign-in starts at 9:30 in the parking lot in front of the new Gladie Environmental and Cultural Learning Center. At 10:00 we will have our safety briefing and car pool to the Trailhead. Free Cliff bars will be given out to the early arrivers.

This year's project will be clearing on Swift Camp Creek Trail. Swift Camp is in the Wilderness and only non-motorized maintenane is permitted. Some crew members will be using hand saws and loppers while others will be using a crosscut saw just as our forefathers would have. The Forest Service will provide all the tools
and safety gear but we could use additional sharp pruning saws; 10 inches or longer or sturdy bypass loppers 2 ft. or larger. To make things interesting we will hike in via a side trail to visit a large natural arch. Due to the distance and rough terrain this will be a moderately strenuous service outing. Please don't let this give you second thoughts because everyone is free to travel at there own pace and I will also need help with several Trails Day related projects
that do not involve going on the long trail. The event goes on rain or shine so don't worry about the weather. Late arrivals are discouraged due safety concerns but I will make arrangements for sign-ins and assignments up till noon.

To get to Gladie Historic site; take exit 33 from the
Mountain Prkway and turn left under the overpass. Turn left again on KY 15 north, about two miles then turn right on KY 77. Bear right at the KY 715 junction and follow 715 to Gladie.

Note from the Mod. [25 May 2004|02:03pm]
So, has anyone been to the Gorge since the Cicadas emerged? Whats it looking like and how bad is it.

Also, start spreading the word. We need more members and we need to jump start this community and get it active.

survey . . . [11 May 2004|07:07pm]

Name: Melissa
Age: 22
Location: Bloomington, IN

Favorite Camping Spot: I'm not really sure. I've only been to the gorge twice. Both times some friends and I stayed about a week and backpacked several miles, camping at a different spot every night. Gotta say though, that I'm jealous of all you who are so close.

Ideas for the Community: I feel so far, yet really I'm not. Camping meetups sound good and just general updates of any gorge news or camping trip highlights.
