  • Chimney Top Recreation Area

    Chimney Top Recreation Area provides visitors with a picnic area and access to Chimney Top Trail #235 and Princess Arch trail #233. It is accessed by the four-mile gravel Chimney Top Road via KY Highway 715.

    Chimney Top Overlook is the most scenic easily accessible overlook within the Red River Gorge. Towering 400 feet above the Red River, Chimney Top provides expansive views of the Gorge’s unique landscape. Chimney Top Trail is a 0.25 mile one-way, relatively flat, and easy in difficulty.

    The Princess Arch trail is a fantastic short walk through a wooded ridge to a slender and graceful 32 feet long 8 feet high arch. The 0.25-mile one-way trail to Princess Arch is easy in difficulty.
