  • Sky Bridge Recreation Area

    Sky Bridge Recreation Area provides visitors with a picnic area, stunning roadside overlooks, and access to one of the most iconic arches in the Red River Gorge. Sky Bridge is a large, sandstone arch formation that measures 23 feet high (7 m) and 75 feet long (22.86 m). To reach the arch, follow Sky Bridge Trail #214.

    The trail makes a one mile moderately difficult loop that leaves the Sky Bridge parking area and extends along a narrow ridge to Sky Bridge Arch and scenic overlooks. The trail passes over and beneath Sky Bridge, along a rock shelter and then up a flight of stairs back to the parking area. The way across the bridge is wide, but there are no guardrails. Keep a close eye on children and keep pets on a leash when crossing.
