Food scene
Miguels is by far the best known place in the Red River Gorge. A mecca for climbers from around the world, Miguels offers camping, breakfast, pizza, and a climb shop. Many additions have been made recently, and more indoor seating is now available. The pizza is fantastic! Expect longer wait times and crowds on weekends.

Hikes
Auxier Ridge offers some of the most stunning views the Gorge has to offer. The trail has a loop option to view courthouse rock and double arch. The loop is long and moderately strenuous, and may not be the best choice for younger children. This trail is usually quite busy, so we recommend visiting on a weekday for the best experience. Also be aware that the road this trail head is located on often closes during the winter, and periodically for repairs. When visiting, you will see the results of an uncontained campfire that devastated parts of the area--a good reminder to practice safe fire-making and leave no trace!

Waterfalls
Creation Falls is a must-visit destination in the gorge, and a great choice for families and kids. This waterfall is located around the center point of Rock Bridge Loop #207. The trail head offers ample parking and pit toilets. You can access the falls by entering the trail going either direction. The south entrance is faster, but has more strenuous stairs. The north entrance offers a more gradual decline, but takes longer. The wading pool at the bottom of the falls tops out at 3 ft at the deepest point. The water is reasonably warm in the summer months. It's mostly shaded, and for some reason, usually not very buggy! Bring water shoes and a picnic basket for the best time!
