Title: Where in the Red?
Post by: sweeper on August 31, 2014, 03:22:55 PM
I was here; can you ID the spot?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: hungrybear on September 01, 2014, 04:35:02 PM
I am stumped, that's not enough scenery for me to be able to pick out where you were.

If I was gonna guess I might say it kinda looks like one of the Whittleton Ridge Vistas.

Or did you make it up to Revenuers Rock?

I think whoever guesses correctly should post their own picture next for us to try and guess.

Man, I've got no idea . . . the Red River Gorge/Cumberland Plateau can be difficult to suss out specific locations from single pictures without context.

GREAT idea about having whoever guesses correctly post their own picture. A few other thoughts . . .

- For "sensitive" locations, have it be verified by the original poster by PM rather than public post. The original poster could simply specify "Send me a PM if you think you know.", then verify and pass the torch to whoever makes the ID.

- Definitely need to put in some clues . . . nearest major drainage? Closest official trail? Clifty Wilderness? Etc.

This thread has some serious potential!

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: sweeper on September 02, 2014, 11:31:11 PM
It could be anywhere, but it is in the Red.

It's an overlook described in Hinterlands.

I was there on a day hike, Labor Day weekend. Tho I saw a lot a cars pulled off as we drove to the trailhead, the trail itself was empty.

As it's in Hinterlands, I don't think it's particularly sensitive. But it's not well-traveled. Just enough, I'd say, to keep it accessible.

So send me a PM, or post away.

Thanks for the clues, I'm still pretty stumped though . . . but am going to make a guess -- is this from one of the overlooks in the Tarr Ridge area described in Hinterlands? Like Tarr Ridge East, Tarr Ridge Extravaganza, etc.

And yeah, I'd agree with you about if it's in Hinterlands it's not "sensitive" in regards to naming it on this forum.

Looking forward to seeing this thread grow!

Post by: refmo on September 03, 2014, 08:17:02 PM
That's a tough one.  From the green tinted rocks, it must be a wet weather waterfall, perhaps at Eagle Point Bluff(??)
Great idea -- and looking forward to seeing more guesses and maybe extra clues every few days until someone gets it.

Post by: sweeper on September 04, 2014, 12:57:37 PM
Mark W wins with the shotgun approach! That is looking along Tarr Ridge from the overlook at the end of the Tarr Ridge East trail.

Given that it was Labor Day Weekend, I was surprised that no one was camping up there. Maybe the 90į+ daytime highs had something to do with that.

It is a really nice view down into Dunkan Branch valley. The leaves on the trees are so thick you can't see Rt 77 at all, but you could still hear the motorcycles. And colors on the nearby cliffs were incredible.

Take it away, Mark!

I'm looking for the name of the creek in this picture. The boulder is a big clue (no pun intended  :P ) It is in the Red River Gorge Geological Area and is crossed by an official trail.

The picture that I posted on the 14th is the exact spot where the hiker was injured this week.  He fell and got impaled on something.   The initial report was Buck Creek but it turned out to be this water crossing on Buck Trail.

Not a good place for cell coverage. Glad they got him out OK.

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on September 30, 2014, 08:52:00 PM
You know, I'm not completely sure of the name given to the unofficial trail that leads off of the Sheltowee and up to the ridge top where you can lookout over to Cloudsplitter.  I don't have my Hinterland book with me.  He may refer to it as the "Nowhere" trail or something like the "Cloudsplitter lookout or overlook trail".  You are correct as to the vantage point.  Cloudsplitter is definitely one of the highlights of the RRG.  You can see the arch from that overlook.  Post a photo sweeper.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: sweeper on September 30, 2014, 10:09:25 PM
I've never seen Cloudsplitter backlit with the morning light before, but it still looked familiar. I was up the Nowhere trail (as Hinterlands calls it) a couple of years back.

(http://i61.tinypic.com/27zfatu.jpg)

I want to head back and maybe follow the ridgeline along. I've heard it can be done and I've heard it's not worth it. Why let that stop me?

Here's the next one:

(http://i60.tinypic.com/25jb8tk.jpg)

If you look close, there's a guy lying on the rock in the center of the picture, which is a known and named feature. This is off the beaten path, and off the unofficial paths.

Surprisingly enough, I have a nearly identical picture (but no one was on the arch).  That is Timmon's Arch viewed from above.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: sweeper on October 01, 2014, 07:45:45 PM
Well that didn't take long. A top view of Timmons Arch it is. Good job refmo.

Got a pic of someplace a bit more obscure to up the challenge level?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: Bazinga on October 02, 2014, 05:45:31 AM
I've been on the ridge top trail from Cloud Splitter to the overlook.  Nice hike with good views, but (like so many others) alot of deadfall.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: refmo on October 02, 2014, 08:33:07 PM
I was really surprised to see someone else had been up above Timmon's Arch.  The first time I tried finding Timmon's Arch, I decided to approach from the ridgetop.  It looked doable from the topo maps, but that 25 foot drop off didn't look that big on the map.  So all I got from that trip was a pic from above.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: refmo on October 02, 2014, 08:37:58 PM
There are lots of obscure places I could post pics of, but decided its more fun to have an unusual view of a fairly well known area.  Maybe next time I'll go more obscure...

Post by: sweeper on October 02, 2014, 08:55:59 PM
We approached it from the creek but found a way to the top of the ridge after crossing over the arch. Neat place.

ETA: the guy on the arch, btw, has the trailname of SweeperG. While I just walked behind the crew, he's actually a chimney sweep.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: hungrybear on October 02, 2014, 09:20:52 PM
I took the creek route to Timmons also and was able to scramble up to the ridge above it. It was pretty tricky and was probably not worth the risk in hindsight.

Refmo, I think I know what I am looking at in the picture but I can't figure out where it was taken.


It is Hanson's from Revenour's Rock?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: sweeper on October 02, 2014, 09:43:06 PM
I don't think it's from RR, but from the other side of the Gap. I've looked at getting down there. But yeah, that's Hanson's Point.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: refmo on October 03, 2014, 04:45:35 PM

You are correct 633.  "Hell's Kitchen"  makes for a nice creek walk in the Spring or Summer.  You can get to it by going downstream from the site of the old log dam on SCC.

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on December 07, 2014, 07:46:15 AM
Technically that would be a window instead of an arch.  Owl's window is easy to spot from the road.  Many of you have probably seen it while driving North along Rt 11 away from the Whittleton Branch Campground.  The Arch/Window is off of the Rock Garden Trail in NBSP.

No, it's in the heart of the gorge. You've probably been there in better weather. You pass over it if coming from the north on the way to this view.

I'm going to go out on a limb and take a wild stab (how's that for mixed metaphors) and say it's the second overlook from the Eagle Point Buttress trail in the Hinterlands book.

Close enough! I'm not sure the exact name . . . this is the small overlook near a campsite not too far from Swift Camp Creek Trail. Charming campsite if it's not trashed; I've stayed there several times over the years and wish I'd stayed more. Great memories.

Anyways, post away . . . I'll sit the next round of guessing out. We are just making these rules up as we go along, right?

Also, I gotta say, this thread is a pretty impressive demonstration of RRG knowledge!

well, i'm not as experienced as some of you at the Gorge, so I must honestly say I've never heard of Neby's Knob, but if you want to elaborate on the location I'll confirm.  I found this spot hiking one of the trails in Hinterlands.

Nope.  Other side of the suspension bridge.  I'll give it one more guess then give some hints.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on February 05, 2015, 06:16:56 PM
No more guesses? I'll give some background.  I'm really just looking for someone to identify the ridge I'm standing on, or the "name" of the trail that leads to this ridge, because I don't think the ridge actually has a name.  To hike this trail, you'd need to park in an extremely popular area.  The trail is described in Hinterlands as ending, but as we all know the real hiking begins when the trail ends.  ;) I continued hiking on a faint overgrown trail (?) for about another 200 yards to reach the ridge.  My back is to the ridge in the original pic.  As a final hint, if you had a good pair of binocular's you'd be able to see an arch on that far off ridge, not that I could find the arch when I tried to hike there.

Here are some more pictures looking off the ridge:

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on February 06, 2015, 08:16:21 PM
Looks like my hints didn't help much.  This was probably too difficult.   My guess is most of you all avoid this area because of crowds.  I decided last year to hike all of the Hinterlands trails and spent a day hiking every trail up and down Tunnel Ridge Rd.  The pics were from the end of Tunnel Ridge Road "N" from Hinterlands. 
Great great trail.  I've been back a couple of times... a great stop before going to Pepe's Point.  If you ever want a quiet spot in that area, this is the place to go.  Give it a try.

Here is a new one that will be much easier.  Maybe the picture angle will at least make you think for a few seconds:

I think I have a shot of the same ridge....

Post by: Mark W on February 12, 2015, 12:07:52 PM
Yeah . . . I think I chose the most difficult path possible to get to that viewpoint when I visited, so the scene was pretty well imprinted in my memory.

Here is a picture of one of my absolute favorite campsites in the Red River Gorge anywhere:

(https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8240/8606716288_760777b2c7_z.jpg)

I'd have to look back my trip journals, but I imagine I've spent at least 15 nights here.

I'm looking for the name of the trail that passes closest to this campsite AND the name of the nearest creek/branch/stream.

Let the guessing begin!
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on February 13, 2015, 06:09:07 AM
May as well start the guessing. Reminds me of a campsite up the hill, where the trail coming from Grey's Arch crosses over Kings Branch. 
Title: Re: Where in the Red?

Yes, that does look like the spot where you can look down on Kings Branch from above Rough Trail.

Nope . . . since there are few visual clues I'll post a picture of the official trail near the campsite:

Sheltowee Trace above Gladdie Creek, not to far from the Bison Way intersection.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: Mark W on February 13, 2015, 02:56:14 PM
Good eye!

Yep, this is the Sheltowee Trace between the junction with Bison Way Trail and the junction with Lost Branch Trail.

In my opinion, this section of trail is probably one of the most "underrated" in the Red River Gorge. Great views when the leaves are off the trees and a charming forest hike when they're on the trees. Not too many people on this section either, but it became one of my favorites over the years.

Anyways, KYhiker40, you're up and I'll sit out this next round of guessing.

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on February 22, 2015, 08:04:24 AM
Ok, a hint.  There is another huge attraction that will identify the location of this picture.  Many families camp across the valley and look at huge attraction, without ever figuring out how to get there hiking unofficial trails.  I find time to go here almost every visit to the gorge, unless there is snow & ice making the return trip somewhat questionable.  Also, many people don't realize this is often the location of a water source in an area that otherwise has none.

You got it!  When you approach Star Gap the "normal" way, walk through the arch and head right alongside the ridge.  The ridge line has these very large holes pictured, a nice rock shelter, and a seasonal light waterfall.  One of my favorite spots. 

You're up Copper Creek.

I can't find a good photo of the shelter (shelters).  I was taking this picture of the 4 foot diameter hemlock tree, but part of the shelter can be seen to the left (not the area with the petroglyph).

You are correct Jacksan.  That particular rock art is found in the third shelter (near the arch between the second and third shelter).  I  believe those shelters did have some native artifacts and petroglyphs which have since been removed.  Post a photo Jacksan.

The best discoveries are the ones found while exploring without a specific agenda.  I came across this arch accidentally by following a faint user trail leading down off of a ridge top trail.  The trail along the ridge is one listed in the "Hinterlands" book.

Yes, Owl's Window is visible from the entrance bridge. There is no trail to it, and off trail hiking is forbidden at the park.

Perhaps I should clarify my location post as well.  My location has nothing to do with a "face". That was a reply to Bazinga, explaining the name of "Indian Head Rock"

My photo comes from the RRG proper, and is a pretty famous landmark.

In the pic, on my right is a large cliff face that I've read is said to be home to a known bobcat population.  Ahead to my left is a climb to a very popular attraction.  Behind me is the reason I like to hike counterclockwise.... a real quad burner!  Sintax77 camped near here.  (That guy has some pretty good videos, if you ask me.)

Since NBSRP has let this linger fer a couple of days, I'll hijack the thread. Where is my boot?

Post by: sweeper on April 19, 2015, 08:17:18 PM
it's entirely plausible that i misread the thread. i don't get out to the red much, but i was there recently so i thought i'd post this.

the funny thing is I don't know the name of the arch. we were approaching the staircase from the south on the sheltowee and I spotted this from below. i've been up the staircase a few times but had never actually seen this arch. whatever the name of this arch is, it is above the staircase. toredrivergorge indicates that trinity is before the staircase. none of the pics i was looking at in my feeble googling seemed to match this one.

so what's the consensus on the name of that arch?

Is this  beneath Rough Trail, after acceding from Martin's Fork towards the intersection with the Grey's Arch trail?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on April 30, 2015, 12:47:22 PM
This is my first time posting, been a long time follower of the site and just recently joined! Love everyone's posts and especially the shared knowledge. You guys/gals are something else!

I think I actually know where this is, been here several times and like to take people who have never been to the gorge before. I don't know if it has a name, but I think it's one of the really large huecos that you see from the overlook on tunnel ridge rd just past the gray's arch parking area. The tree branch gives it away. 

Oh, I see someone beat me! Oh well, still love this thread, maybe I'll get in on another one.  :)
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on April 30, 2015, 01:38:57 PM
KYhiker40 and RCKT_RCCN are both correct.  I think both of you should post a pic.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on April 30, 2015, 02:09:22 PM
Thanks copper creek! I'm going to post a picture very similar to the one I got correct, but in a completely different part of the gorge. This pic was from this past weekend. My buddies and I hiked all morning in the pouring down rain. Had most of the trails to ourselves.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on May 01, 2015, 04:26:10 AM
This is a ridiculous guess because I don't recognize the hole.  But the trees, fog, and falloff of pine needles look familiar, if that's even possible.  Probably crazy... but is this along the backside of Gray's Arch?

Meanwhile, how about this extremely easy one that may fool a few people:
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on May 01, 2015, 07:57:16 AM
That was a good guess KYhiker40, but I'm afraid that's incorrect.

I will give a few hints to help every one out. This feature is not near Gray's Arch, it's on the other side of the gorge. It is off trail (just barely) and extremely close to a well-known feature. Even in a downpour there were plenty of people on this trail. If you can guess the nearby attraction that will be good enough for me!
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: Mark W on May 01, 2015, 01:08:46 PM
I'm going to try to guess both:

Angel Windows Trail and Auxier Branch?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on May 01, 2015, 01:18:41 PM
Auxier Branch is correct.  That tree wasn't laying across the water the previous time I was there, threw me when I first looked at the picture.  But the trail on the left is a dead give away.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on May 01, 2015, 02:19:47 PM
Mark W you are getting warmer, but not quite there yet. Here's another hint: When most people visit the nearby attraction they look up not down.

And here's another clue, a picture from the same trail. Now we should have a winner pretty quickly.  :)
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on May 04, 2015, 11:48:26 AM
Alright, I'm giving up hope of somebody figuring out where my pictures are located. Mark W, since you got the last one right, it's all yours!

For those who are curious, the hole and the wall that I posted are along the Sky Bridge Trail. Yep, one of the busiest and most tourist-y trails out there. The hole is actually below the arch.

Thanks for the chance, next time I'll do a better job posting something more recognizable!

This one is really tough.  Reminds me of the ridge leading out to Jailhouse Rock.  Pic taken from the opposite ridge, off the unmarked trail extending past the old gravel road leading out to Double Arch.

Just a guess.  Its been a few days.  Somebody has to take a shot at it.

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on May 13, 2015, 09:40:41 PM
You park at the Rough Trail trail head, hike across Chimney Top Road, cross Chimney Top Creek, the hiked up the ridiculous steep Rough Trail / Sheltowee Trace to that huge flat overlook, then took a picture of Pitch 'em Tight Ridge. 

That is, of course, again, just a guess.  I've only stood at that spot 1 time when hiking from the opporsite direction and relaxed enough to enjoy the view.  Normally I'm hunched over catching my breath while cursing the hiking gods that I had to fill up my water bottle at the bottom of the said ridiculous steep hill.

Is that it?

I actually thought it was around Turtle Falls, but I'm glad I just went with the broad answer rather than the specific. I like the "twist" to the game.

Here's my photo, hoping that the snow will make it a bit more difficult to guess:

(https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7310/11281342243_8f26d73190_z.jpg)

What ridge was this picture taken on?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on May 19, 2015, 04:14:58 PM
Looks to me like the walk back from the end of the Ridge on top of Star Gap Arch.  That overlook falling off the left with the solid rock snow covered surface.  Good confusing picture.  I'm not sure, but I think its a worth guess.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on May 27, 2015, 06:32:17 PM
Well, somebody has to make a guess to narrow this down.  Could it be the unofficial trail on top of Double Arch, most likely the first ridge out to the right after you reach the top.  That might (?) give you a view of Tall Arch. 

Picture taken from the opposite side of the ridge, at the end of the unofficial trail extending from the gravel road that serves as the beginning of the Double Arch hike.

What trail was this taken from and what is the name of the road down below?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on June 10, 2015, 05:52:50 PM
Well, not sure if this is right or what you're looking for.  But that looks like Andrew's point in the left distance, so I'm saying that road is Twin Arch Rd and you are taking this from the trail leading to or on top of the Nada Arches.

I've never been there, so this is quite the opposite perspective for me.  Very curious if I'm correct.

These were definately NOT taken from on top of Nada Arches.  I'm not familiar with Andrew's point however, I just pulled up the track in Garmin Mapsource and it definately could be Andrew's point in the left distance.

I have a very similar picture from that same location.

http://s1296.photobucket.com/user/refmo/media/hike/a%20052_zpsfenapris.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 (http://s1296.photobucket.com/user/refmo/media/hike/a%20052_zpsfenapris.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0)

This is at the end of the first spur on the left after you pass the Star Gap spur (which is on the right) on the Stargap Trail.
There is another spur off this spur that will take you to Andrew's Arch (and Andrew's Point).

If you turn 90 degrees right from this picture, you can see Andrews Point.

Title: Re: Where in the Red?

Rocky Branch Overlook Trail
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on June 22, 2015, 10:04:58 PM
Very nice Bazinga.  This is actually the area where the Double Arch Extension Trail meets the Rocky Branch Overlook Trail.   You come down this "staircase" in the picture at the end of the Double Arch Extension Trail and the Rocky Branch Overlook Trail can only be connected to with climbing gear. 

Myself, I had no intention of going down this staircase.  I took off my backpack to enjoy the view.  Then I knocked my elbow into my pack and watch the pack tumble down the hill!  So, i followed my pack down this hill. The decent down was easy if you are comfortable with scrambling.  I was not, however, comfortable going back up.  I managed to connect to the Double Arch Trail by descending south via a series of short switchbacks utilizing tree roots.

By the way, in the Hinterlands this is the spot he says to call 911 if you get there and good luck getting out.  I wouldn't try this hike if you aren't experienced with scrambling and moderate climbing. 

Here is one final view of this hill, which I labelled "another staircase" in my pictures.  This picture was taken from the end of the Rocky Branch Overlook Trail, after scrambling as far south as I could.

You're up Bazinga.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: Bazinga on June 23, 2015, 06:11:09 AM
Know all about the helpless feeling watching your pack fall...We climbed up to Twilight arch and reached an overhang that was too small to crawl through with a backpack on.  I went through first dragging my pack behind.  Tim took off his pack and it slipped out of his hand and went rolling down the steep hillside we had just climbed.   :P

Name the overlook, where Tim is practicing his Captain Morgan pose.

I have no idea. But this reminds me how I have always wished there were more Native carvings and signs of them having been here. May we all aspire to be ghost like and leave the forests in as pristine a condition as the Adena, Cherokee, Choctaw, etc...

But wouldn't it be sweet to be walking the BSF or RRG and see a monolithic head, wrapped in rhododendron vines? That's how it feels to me.

I hope to see more ^ native-esque art on my hikes! And I can't wait to find out where this is.

A bit of a hint.  I'd be surprised if most all of you haven't walked within eye sight of this pic and didn't know it.  This is right off of a popular trail near a necessary water source.  If you haven't camped here, you've probably at least stopped very close to here for a water fill up.  I visit this trail a few times every year.

Nope.  Ok, here's the giveaway... I don't want to hog the thread since I jumped in...

I am standing on top of that rock, which is located at the end of the trail just past this arch.   Sometimes the arch is hard to see from the Auxier Ridge Trail, but when the sun shines right through the opening, its pretty cool.  I visit this spot frequently, as somehow it still remains relatively unknown, not even appearing on the GIS maps or Hinterlands.

Orange fringed orchid.  Find them down by the creek edge or marshy areas.  :)
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on August 05, 2015, 05:55:39 PM
Yes, it is a yellow fringed orchid.  They are not as orange as that picture makes them out to be (I've been told the white balance in my camera compensated for the green in the background and turned the flower a more orange color). They were recently in bloom (and may still be).  I've not found them along the creeks, but have found them in certain areas along the ridge tops.  One of the camping areas off of TRR (one specifically) has a path leading to a small glade with a decent sized colony of these relatively rare orchids.  When I hike around RRG, I enjoy seeing and trying to identify the plants and wildflowers as much as taking in the scenery.  Your turn Bazinga.

Those windchimes are one of those that you probably won't guess if you don't know.  Its one of my favorite camp spots off of the old Double Arch trail.  I'm surprised somebody didn't stumble across this from the HInterlands.   I'll keep the exact location to myself.

Here's another one to let someone else jump in.  From what popular trail did I take this pic?

Alright, I'll dig up a picture soon.

I've got to admit, I'm pretty embarrassed I didn't notice it was Cherokee Arch in the first picture you posted. Cherokee Arch is one of my all-time favorite arches and I absolutely love its location and everything about it. It's just one of those perfect places . . . lots of memories there for me. I think I would be OK being reincarnated as a piece of moss on Cherokee Arch.

Anyways, glad you made it there and hope you can visit it in the winter -- it's quite the sight to see then! Standing under it during a lightly falling snow is magical . . . like being in your own snowglobe!

Nope, I suppose not haha. I haven't given it too much thought but it just kind of came out stream-of-consciousness yesterday. I stand by that statement, though  :)

KYhiker40, you are correct.  This small cemetery is along the north shore of Mill Creek Lake.  There is an unofficial trail leading along the north shore (accessible for some fishing sites) all the way to where Mill Creek feeds into the lake.  I have not explored up Mill Creek, but have that on my list of areas to check out.  Your turn...

No it's not.  I'll give a hint since I'm going to be away from home hiking most of the week.  That is not a picture of the Red River or of Swift Camp Creek.

I guess a lot of you probably looked at this picture and thought, "really KYhiker40, that picture could be absolutely anywhere."  I was hoping the long row of purple flowers on the other side of the water would jar some memories.  I'll give another hint...

I posted this picture on Labor Day weekend for a reason.  Also, the picture names the trail.

Post by: KYhiker40 on September 10, 2015, 07:45:22 PM
Ok, there's been 46 views and not many guesses, so that must be to difficult of a camera angle.  Or perhaps many of you just avoid this area.  This was taken at "Lake Side Trail" which connects Whittleton Campground to the Natural Bridge State Park.  It's a nice little trail, only about 1/2 mile long, but actually very relaxing.

Here is an easy one to move this along.  Name this rock:

I'll leave this one for someone else, maybe we can get some new blood in on this thread.  A very nice overlook indeed.  I'm tore on where the best view in the Gorge is, but this is worthy of the debate in my opinion.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't on/near Eagle Point Buttress Trail?

No need for correction. It's right near the main overlook.

The memorial was mentioned in a thread in 2011 (http://www.kywilderness.com/forum/index.php?topic=4774.0), which I didn't realize until after I posted the pic.

Have you got a good one for us?

I think it's more of a pictogram than a pun, but I can be pedantic at times.

That being said, it looks like a small crack, or wedge or opening in the sandstone, so it must be along Sand Gap trail.

Or maybe it's based on the red flowers. Are those Penstemon, aka Red Riding Hood Beardtongue? Given the unusual bifurcated stems, I think it must be along Hood's Branch trail.

But, the flowers look to be nearer to the top. It must be along Upper Hood's Branch trail.

No wait. The light and the dark sections of the stone almost equally fill the screen. It must be along Balanced Rock trail.

Oh, but the shadows seem to be fighting the light across the expanse of the rock. The flowers seem adrift in the middle of the clashing forces, tossed about like a boat on the high seas. It must be along Battleship Rock trail.

If it's not one of those, I hope someone else can solve this mystery.

I love the taste of iocane in the morning. But that is not the inspiration for this.

Regardless, I'm sorry for the trouble. I was just trying to associate that picture with all the major trails at Natural Bridge. I know I missed some, but those left me stumped.

Hmm. Stumps. A stump means a cut down tree. Trees have leaves. Leaves are often used in a wreath, or laurel. Dagnabit, I should be able to make this happen.

I guess that's just a ridge too far.

I'm a hack. Not like rckt_rccn. That's creativity. That picture is one of kind. One could say it's distinctly unique.

Wait. Is that it? Was this on the Original Trail?

Post by: RCKT_RCCN on September 28, 2015, 10:03:37 PM
Oh sweeper, you are so close yet not quite there.

When I said it was a pun, I meant it. Let the words of my original post rattle around inside your mind. Let them hang over you while you decipher the location. Let them take you for a ride down memory lane to places you've lingered.

One could say this lonely shrub has been seen by thousands yet only a few have gazed at its splendour. Many wander this path in a hurry but get nowhere fast. It knocks them off their feet, but its not the main attraction.

Where is this little red shrub?

I am totally stumped by this.  I thought I had hiked every trail in the area described, both official and from the Hinterlands, as well as considerable off trail adventures.  But I just can't recall seeing this.  The only spot I can think of is along the Sheltowee between Rough Trail and the Suspension Bridge.  There is a side trial that goes up at a similar angle which is not marked nor described in Hinterlands.  I believe it might circle around in front of Cherokee Arch eventually, but I skipped it.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: chuckebo on October 05, 2015, 05:30:57 PM
Well, both 633 and Kyhiker40 are technically correct, it is on the ST.  Since Kyhiker40 gave the more thorough and accurate description, I'll say that he is correct.  It is between the suspension bridge and Rough Trail.   If he wants to post the next pic or turn it over to 633 that is up to him.    In my initial post, I said that I was curious if anybody had any more information on this trail.  It appears to me from it's location that it could lead up to the bottom of Chimney Rock or Half Moon.  I don't think it would lead out to Cherokee as it would have to cross over Chimney Top Road or circle all the way around which I doubt.     Anyway, you are up Kyhiker40.

Hinterlands describes a trail that connects up to Chimney Top with considerable difficulty.  This could be the beginning of that trail I suppose, but he says there really isn't a connection.  Anyhow, I'll default to 633. 

633 - you're up!

Yes, RCKT_RCCN, that is a large petroglyph found in the RRG.  It currently is on display at the Clay City Museum.  Alan K. Cornette, the author of "The Sandstone Chronicles", argues that the carvings are representative of Meso-American Native Americans (Myan/Aztec).  Your turn.

Good job, copper creek. Yeah, that's what happens when you're taking a panoramic shot with someone walking in the opposite direction. Also, he's not hunch-backed - there's a backpack hiding under his rain coat!

If that's Lover's Leap, and it looks like it is, then that's not technically in the "Red" but rather on state park lands. That is, if by "Red", you mean the Red River Gorge Geological Area which is in the Daniel Boone National Forest. Just saying.

While not officially part of the Red River Gorge National Geological Area, NBSP is part of the Red River Gorge.  The Middle Fork of the Red River carved the NBSP area, just as the upper fork carved the RRGNG area.  I guess we should have better defined the location for this thread. IMO NBSP should be included.

Mark:
"I agree completely that Natural Bridge State Park should be included as the same forces shaped it as the rest of the "official" Red River Gorge . . . geologically speaking its the same place, it's just managed by a different agency with a different designation.

Anyways, as for the picture (gorgeous picture, by the way) I'm thinking that is on Rough Trail headed towards Rush Ridge if you came from Gray's Arch?"

The same geology and same forces that shaped Natural Bridge State Park and Red River Gorge pretty much extend from Tennessee into Ohio.

Many people say Red River Gorge is part of the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Not true.

The Mountain Parkway doesn't go through any mountains either. Just saying.

I've never heard that the RRG was part of the Appalachian foot hills.
And the Bert T Combs Mtn Pky goes past 2 parks and more or less terminates in Prestonsburg KY which is about as mountainous as it gets around this part of the country.
Sounds like a mountain parkway to me!

Discussion of these topics could fill a graduate-level survey course in geography or Appalachian Studies, but I'll go ahead and offer my thoughts to hopefully get this thread back on track . . .

1) Yes, Natural Bridge State Resort Park and the Red River Gorge Geological Area are part of the much larger Cumberland Plateau physiographic region. But for the purposes of this thread we are posting pictures taken in or around the area colloquially known as "The Red" which means pictures should generally be limited to landforms in the Red River watershed . . . primarily those in the Red River Gorge Geological Area and adjacent national forest and Natural Bridge State Resort Park.

2) Correct, the Red River Gorge region is not geologically part of the Appalachian Foothills. It's rugged terrain and proximity to the "real" foothills easily misleads both locals and tourists to make the assumption that they are in the foothills or the "mountains". Culturally, however, the Red River Gorge area is certainly part of Appalachia (and by cultural association the Appalachian Mountains). It's also worth noting that all counties in the RRG are "Appalachian" according to the Appalachian Regional Commission.

I've heard many locals in the Red River Gorge (third and fourth generation) say they are "from the mountains" or "grew up in these mountains" and I usually don't correct them unless they seem interested in geological distinctions. Some do and some don't and I've had some great conversations this way and learned a lot about people and their heritage, "folk tales", their connection with the landscape, etc. I'm sure I've also come off as an obnoxious know-it-all "outsider" at times. Regardless, the majority of people who live in the Red River Gorge are undoubtedly culturally affiliated with the Appalachian Mountain culture and that's cool.

3) The Mountain Parkway provides access to the mountains of eastern Kentucky. It's named for its destination, not the area it passes through. From my understanding the parkway was built explicitly to improve transportation to the mountains of Kentucky in the hope that it would allow for increased economic activity and lead to jobs and prosperity in the region. This didn't exactly work out as planned (obviously) and it is one reason why I feel that the expansion of the parkway is particularly asinine.

To put it another way, Shelbyville Road in Louisville, Kentucky doesn't pass through Shelbyville . . . but it will take you to Shelbyville if you follow it long enough.

Lastly . . . you remind me of a me just a bit  ;)  Thanks for giving me an excuse to wander down memory lane and reminisce about the Appalachian Studies courses I took at UK and my time spent living near the RRG. I actually considered going to grad school in Appalachian Studies but life took me down a different crooked, mountain path.

So . . . any guesses on the last picture? I'm sure many of you have hiked past the confluence with this stream and the major Red River tributary it feeds into.

Salt Fork and Gladie?

Oh, and yes, if it is any consolation, we do consider ourselves part of the Red River Gorge physiographic micro-region.  The Middle Fork of the Red River does flow through the heart of our park.  ;)

Post by: Navigator on November 12, 2015, 08:01:32 PM
The term mountain(s) is a matter of perspective. While geoligist may have soom esoteric definition of what constitutes a mountain, common folks have another. The Cumberland plateau rises a thousand feet above the Tennesee and Ohio river valleys. That pretty significant.
Near Morehead is a place called Clack mountain with elevations of 1000 to 1300 feet.  Similar elevations as found at the Red. Basically, mountains are mountains if people say so.  The mountains of eastern Ky are part of the Cumberland Plateau.
Really, the gorge area sould be expanded a great deal from south of Whites Branch, north to Hwy 460, West to at least Hatton ridge and east following the river toward Campton.
If someone post a 'Where in the Red' with a picture from Wittleton Ridge, I could accept that.
I can also accept that not all folks are as familiar with the areas of the Red, or as obsessed with maps as I am!
Let's just have fun!

Wow . . . it appears the mellow of this thread has been significantly harshed. But hopefully not irreparably. Let's shift any discussion of geology, cultural associations, etc. to another thread if we want to continue to split hairs and eventually move on to beating dead horses.

So, the guess by Natural Bridge SRP as to the location of the last photo posted was correct. That picture was taken a few hundred feet up Salt Fork from its confluence with Gladie. I find those first few hundred to be exceedingly beautiful and there are a few great (but often trashed) campsites up Salt Fork. Fun creekwalking up Salt Fork!

So, Natural Bridge SRP  . . . you're up!

Wow, i can't believe its been 8 days.  This week flew by, holidays I guess.

I was looking unsuccessfully for Dehart Arch, which I thought would be extremely simple to find if I just parked my car and opened my eyes.  I don't recall where I heard about this Arch or why I thought it would be so easy, but I do recall reading that if I parked here I'd be right on top of it.  This picture was taken at the end of an unofficial trail exiting the parking lot.

LOL  NO, which probably explains why I couldn't find the Arch.  This is going to be impossible. 

I just realized the irony.  The picture I posted is of an "arch".  I wonder if the person who put it there thought of that?  Anyhow, this picture was taken on the trail which exits the Pioneer Parking Lot off of Tunnel Ridge Rd.

I agree.  There are actually 2 user trails here, one left and one right.  The left one is shorter, with an incredible view.  The right one splits off to a big camp spot and a slight scramble down to a unique view of the Double Arch extension trail (?name?).

Looks the the feature at the end of one of the left side ridges further out the same ridgeline as Star Gap is off of.

That was a great guess, even if it was wrong! I was positive you had it right.  I'd never question Bazinga... but are you SURE you have that picture labelled correctly?  ;)

I know right! :)  Since you know where I'm talking about...can you get up there?  Last time I was there light was fading fast so we booked it out but I vowed to return to see if I can get up there.

My next guess was Hen's Nest (plus I noticed that this picture was a cropped version of the same pic in Bazinga's thread about Osbourne Ridge haha) so I figured that would be too easy and didn't speak up.

I'm Dave BTW, long time lurker, finally decided to join.

I have a photo, but first, a crazy story about Hen's Nest Rock.

During the summer of 2011 I was working for the USFS in the Gorge. It was pouring rain one afternoon, when a coworker and I stopped in the Gladie Center to dry off.  Just as we were about to head out again, a call came in to Gladie about a pick up truck that had slid off of the road and into the ditch near Tower Rock.  Since we were headed that way anyhow, we agreed to check on the motorist and see if he needed a tow or just help to push his vehicle back onto the road.

Upon arriving at the scene my coworker and I noticed a SUV that had also stopped there, and the occupants of the SUV were waving us over. The driver of the pickup was seated inside the SUV, and one of the vehicle's occupants was supporting driver of the pickup's head in order to protect his spine.  This was confusing to me, because the truck accident wasn't severe enough to cause any spinal injuries. However, after speaking with the driver and the occupants of the SUV, it became very clear that a much more serious situation was at hand. 

The driver revealed that he was rappelling and had fallen off of a cliff, and now his partner was trapped on a narrow ledge. He was suffering from the effects of a concussion and was driving to get help when he wrecked. Understandably, the driver was unclear about the name of the feature he had fallen from, but described it as "a tower of rock".  Given the location of his truck, our initial presumption was that he had fallen at Tower Rock itself, the trailhead being just a few yards away.  However, when we sought more details to support that idea, the driver said that it wasn't Tower Rock, and that he had "crossed the creek" to get back to his truck.  We asked him if he would be able to point out where he came out of the woods if he was driven by it, and he said he would be able.  After driving a short distance east from Tower Rock (towards the concrete bridge), the driver pointed out a location on the river side of the road, and the pieces began to come together.  He was talking about Hen's Nest.

The folks from the SUV took the driver of the pick up truck to Gladie where they would wait for an ambulance. Meanwhile, my coworker and I  headed down the hill and waded across the river at a point that was knee deep.  We then rushed up to the base of the cliffline at Hen's Nest and began walking counter clockwise around the feature while blowing a whistle and yelling.  The whole time flagging our route behind us.  We hoped to make verbal contact with the friend over the wind and the rain.  A few minutes later (after what felt like an eternity), our hearts leapt when we heard the stranded friend call back. 

We radioed Gladie, and had them relay to search and rescue that we had found the stranded subject. We also made the recommendation that they enter the woods at the same location we did and follow our flagging.  While we waited, we yelled back and forth with the stranded rappeller, who rested on a ledge that was about 80 feet off of the ground.  He was able to fill us in on exactly what had happened. 

He and his friend had scrambled up a crack on the back side of Hen's Nest, then set up to rappel down a 150 ft cliff, that he was now trapped smack dab in the middle of.  Because their rope wasn't long enough (over 300 ft) to rig a retrievable rappel down the entire face, they opted to descend in two pitches, the first ending on the ledge after around 70 feet.  After each of the pair had reached the ledge, the the driver rigged the second pitch of the rappel. This is where he made his error. Instead of using his own webbing to build an anchor around the small tree on the ledge, he opted instead to use an old piece of webbing that had been utilized for the same purpose and left around the tree, God only knows how long it had been there.  This decision saved the driver around $3 but nearly cost him his life.  As soon as he weighted the dry rotted anchor, the webbing snapped and he plummeted 80 ft to the ground, taking with him their rope, and leaving his friend stranded.  As he peered over the edge, the stranded partner saw his friend lying motionless on the ground, and logically assumed he was dead.

This is where things get even more crazy.  After about 15 minutes, the driver gets up without saying a word to his partner, takes off his harness, and beelines out of the woods.  He somehow was able to navigate out of the woods, successfully wade across the river, find their truck, and then proceeded to wreck it in the ditch.  While you could definitely question his judgement, you can not question his toughness.

Now, lets get back to the rescue.  The Wolfe County Search and Rescue Team was unable to access Hen's Nest via the same route that we had taken because the once knee deep Red River was flash flooding, having risen several feet in the past hour.  They were forced instead to walk down the river from the concrete bridge, which took extra time.  Once they reached the scene, they were able to reach the top of Hen's Nest, set up a high angle rescue,  pick off the stranded subject, and bring him safely to the ground. 

As for the driver, there's an axiom that says "it's not the fall that kills you, it's the rapid deceleration."  Conditions were perfect for a slow deceleration.  When he fell, he impacted a very steep slope, covered with deep leaf duff, and saturated by the rain.  It acted like a water slide, and saved his life.  His only injuries, a concussion and a broken collar bone.

Phew, sorry about the long interlude.  Given the subject of the story, let's go with a picture from a rescue incident. Where specifically did this man on a corporate retreat "fall on hard times"?

Less well know and visited.  You can scramble up to this one if you're careful.  It was a bit icy yesterday, so I opted out of scrambling up to the arch.  You can also see this one from the road if you know where to look, particularly in the morning when the sun is shining through the arch.

No, not needle's eye.  It's located in the Mill Creek drainage area (like Black John or Mill Creek arches).  It is not that hard to get to.  I'm not sue if it is on public or private land.  On maps, the arch looks to be located near the border of the RRG Geologic area. Maybe it's a little too obscure?  It's probably about 1/2 -3/4 mile from the one below, which can also be seen from a different road when the leaves are down and the sun is just right:

Huckleberry Arch is the first arch.  It can be seen early in the morning when the sun shines through the arch, while driving along Glencairn Road from west to east.  Dark Hollows Arches is the second arch.  It can sometimes be seen on winter afternoons while driving south of NBSP on Rt 11.

There are many very nice places to explore along Rt 11 south of NBSP, including at least three major climber community trails that travel up to interesting cliff lines.  One of my favorite wet weather waterfalls is off of one of them; Zoo Arches are along another. The climber areas are not secret and are all frequently used by the climbers. 

Here is an easier one:

I'd love to check out Eagle's Nest from inside but that's just way too dangerous for my liking so that's not where this hole is.  This one has basically no danger to it at all.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on April 30, 2016, 09:10:15 AM
I know of a similar one with very little danger to it at all, but I've never seen it mentioned online before, will keep that one to myself.  I don't think mine and yours are the same, based on those rocks in your picture.

Those rocks below remind me of the unofficial trail "N" off of Tunnel Ridge Road, at the end of the overlook, but I'm not aware of a "nest" there.  But just for kicks, I'll call this guess #2.  Tunnel Ridge Road Trail N from the Hinterlands.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: duxsrus on April 30, 2016, 11:23:16 AM
I'm not sure where "N" is but if that's the old end of TRR I know where you're talking about and that's not this one.  But....you're getting warm. 
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on May 01, 2016, 05:17:47 AM
Tunnel Ridge Rd trail "N" from the Hinterlands exits TRR near the 2nd lookout.  It goes out probably 3/4 of a mile, with an overlook left of similar rock formations on the ground to the ones in the picture.  The more I look at the picture... they really look similar.

The one you referred to near the old end of TRR, that's a neat spot.  I don't think have been to that one, as the area is still clean and natural.  Hopefully it stays that way!
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: duxsrus on May 01, 2016, 09:09:33 AM
Dug out the book and looked up N and that's definitely not this spot but now I have to check out N sometime!  Same road, albeit the other side, mere feet from an official named trail.

There hasn't been any replies in several days.   Here's a hint that should help give it away if you're willing to do a little searching thru this forum.
The POI I am referring to was discussed in this forum a number of years ago. It also includes a couple of very nice photos.   A user also posted a link to a  very well done Youtube video of the view  and the POI.   The first 2 or 3 seconds of the video shows the exact same view as the photo I posted.

You are correct Copper Creek. You are up.     I am not sure what state the petroglyph is in, it has been 7 or 8 years since I have been there.   With the huge expanse of deadfalls you have to climb over and under to get there, I don't expect to be revisiting it in the near future.  It's just not worth it after seeing it already.

Correct Shaman, except this is in the gorge along the middle fork of the RR.   It's the Glencairn Fault.  You can see it on Rt. 11, just south of the turn-off to Mill Creek Pond, and just before you get to Glencairn Road.  Post a photo Shaman.

Cloud Splitter from Hanson Point.

That's a horrible guess.  Can't be right.  I don't know why this one is hard.  It should be easy, but I'm sitting here scanning over my personal pictures and I have several pictures that almost fit perfectly on top of this landscape.  The problem is that none of my pictures show the road below. 

How about this one.  Cloud Splitter from Half Moon?  That's a better guess I think.

Duxsrus, you are correct about the cliff face being raven rock.  I wasn't sure if folks realized that was what they were looking at from this spot, but the photo was not taken from cloud splitter.  The location from which the photograph was taken is well known.  This is really very easy.  People down below, or along the road, might wave at you while you are there.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: jacksan on June 12, 2016, 08:57:27 PM
I would say from Chimney Top. Looks possible, like threading the needle, on a topo.
... but you said it was looking west to east, which would put the road to the left of the river in the photo.



Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on June 12, 2016, 10:20:39 PM
Sorry about that jacksan, I got turned around.  Yes you are looking from Chimney Top west toward Raven Rock. Here is a close up showing Raven Rock, with Auxier Ridge and Court House Rock behind.  Your turn jacksan.

Alright, I think I'm gonna post a picture to move this show along . . . the arch was Black John Arch, as it seems like several of us already deduced by one method or another. What official trail was this picture taken on?

Tower Rock Trail?

...Just having a little fun with the name game!!  LOL!!!

With that said, I won't name it either, only because I can't think of any good photos I've got to post! I do want to visit this spot though.
I didn't answer as I am running out of pictures to post.   I have the pictures,  I just don't remember where I took them.

What's up with no pics?   ???  I guess ya'll need to hike in the red!!!   

I'm soooooo ready, but the weather hasn't been cooperative.    :-[
Sunday looks good at the moment.  Crossing my fingers.

Title: Re: Where in the Red?

Nope and nope.

Most people use this trail to access the user trail to one of the Red's most popular landmarks.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on August 08, 2016, 09:16:16 PM
This would be a very clever picture if I'm right...

Is this the very beginning of the official Double Arch trail, between the official trailhead and the gravel "road", picture taken looking back in the direction of the trial head?
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on August 09, 2016, 08:28:13 AM
I'm going to take a guess that its Bison Way Trail? I'm thinking the most popular landmark is Indian Staircase. If I'm right I'll have to dig to find a suitable picture!
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: Mark W on August 09, 2016, 10:58:40 AM
So, so close . . .  -- it is actually the Sheltowee Trace right next to Bison Way Trail. Go ahead and post!
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on August 09, 2016, 01:17:05 PM
I realize now that the Sheltowee makes more sense, given the slope of the terrain next to the trail. I just figured the picture was taken looking back toward the trailhead.

Before I post my next picture, I need some help. How do you get the embed function to work? When I tried to do it earlier, all I got was the little broken picture symbol. Normally I just add photos as an attachment, but I'm trying to step up my game! lol

Yes Mark, this is the adult form of the Eastern Newt/Salamander, Notophthalmus viridescens.  The adults live in small ponds scattered about the RRG region.  The juveniles are called Red Efts and are terrestrial; always a treat to find one along the trails.

Your turn Mark.

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner. I had a really obscure photo that I was going to use, but opted for something slightly easier.

This is a great spot with a 280į view at the end of TRR, trail veers off to the right of the start of Double Arch trail, right before the staircase drops down. That poor tree has probably been scorched by lightning more times than you could count.

Duxrus is correct! This ridgeline is visible from stargap ridge looking south from one of the barren saddles as you make your way out toward Pepe's point. You're up

I'll try again with what was almost my first guess.  Not sure the name of this ridge, but if you are standing on Andrews Ridge with your back to Nada Valley, you would be looking at this ridge which is accessible from an unmarked side trail off the unofficial trail leading to Star Gap. (clear as mud that explanation)
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: RCKT_RCCN on December 24, 2016, 10:52:13 PM
Kyhiker40 that's a good guess but still not there yet. I'll give this hint. My picture featured only a small portion of the rock formation. The full view is much more glorious, I just didn't have a picture without a tree in the way! Also, I took this picture in the late morning on a mid October day. For the real sleuths that clue should help.  ;)

Betania, good job! And your picture captures well what I was saying about it being only a small portion. I've heard others refer to it as Cruiseliner Rock because it resembles the side of a cruise ship.

No, that's not it.

I honestly thought this would go very quickly. It's a little hard to make out, but the trail on the lower level that you can faintly see running alongside the bottom of the larger tree trunk is an official trail.

As a side note to the Signature Rock photo I posted, if you look in the center of the photo you will see where someone carved the date and "Just Married".  I noticed this carving back in the early 80s.  Then, the original carver added new carvings to the rock every year or so until about 2006 when the carvings stopped.  I don't like people defacing the natural surroundings, but I couldn't help but wonder what has happened to the original carver. 

Back in the mid 70s when I first encountered Signature Rock, I found some carvings that were dated back in the mid 30s and 40s; they have long since weathered away.  A few years ago I posted a trip report here of my backpacking trip on the Knobstone Trail.  During that trip I found some very clear carvings that were dated 1911.

Navigator is correct. It's a fantastic arch, but a real challenge to reach! We came up from below and almost missed it.

I assume the shelter above was built in the 1930's by the CCC, like other similar shelters found in the same general area.  I feel confident many of you have walked by it, but perhaps you didn't notice it.  During the winter, when the leaves are down, it's easy enough to spot.  The shelter is about 20 yards off of the trail, up and along the ridge crest, and has a partially obstructed view (due to plant growth) of the same feature in the second picture.  Do you know what trail travels near the shelter?

The CCC shelter above is found along the Sand Gap Trail in NBSP.  It is probably less than 1/2 mile from where the Sand Gap Trail starts near Natural Bridge.  A bit farther out Sand Gap Trail you can reach The Narrows, White's Branch Arch, and Twilight Arch.  Sand Gap Trail is the most isolated NBSP trail.  I've found some of the less common Kentucky Wildflowers along the Sand Gap Trail.  How about this one:

Not sure where footwash falls is located.  I'll say along rough trail where it runs along chimney top creek.

Maybe this angle will help. This boulder is what you'd crawl under through that hole on the right side. The red circle is where you come through and it's big enough that you only have to bend down a little to walk through it.

Kind of looks like as you leave the rock shelter past Indian Staircase and go out the back way towards Adena.

That's correct! This picture is about 10 years old, but I do know it's the official #100 Sheltowee Trace Trail leaving Indian Staircase, heading south towards Indian Arch and Adena. This is where the trail gets close to the cliff wall, with Indian Staircase Connector Trail directly above.

The first time I went to Courthouse in my early 20's, there were already people on top and seeing that, I scrambled my way up there in a flash.  The way down was a little unnerving but it was no big deal.  The next time I made it back out there some 15 years had passed and I looked at that crack and said no way in h#$%!!!

The above waterfall is off of the middle fork of the RR and is well known.  I'll bet you can guess its name.

This unnamed waterfall is also off of the middle fork, but is much less well known.  Have any of you ever been here?

It is on Rough Trail near the junction with Rush Ridge Trail (coming from the east) I think?

Not sure about the name, I think one guidebook called it the Flinstone's two-story apartment or something?

Yes, the rock shelter on Rough Trail #221 near Rush Ridge trail. Very identifiable from the two levels. You both have the correct location, but Captain Blue has the more commonly known name, Second Story, so I have to give it to him. However, I almost like the name "Flintstone's Two-Story Apartment" better. Mark, do you recall which guidebook or where you might have come across that name before?

Funny I was just reading about this rock shelter a few days ago and saw the Flintstone's Reference.   It's in a book called Kentucky's Land Of The Arches by R.H. Ruchhoft.  There is a pic of the shelter and he calls it Fred Flintstone Shelter.   Not sure if this is the book Mark was referring to or not.

Looks like the ridgeline above Rat Windows, at the far north rock outcropping of Chimney Top Road by the river. Also near Cherokee Arch. I believe there is a climbing route at the very end.

Correct! This prominent rock formation is known as Jewell Pinnacle. It is most visible when traveling east on Hwy. 715 towards Gladie Creek and when headed down the driveway into the Gladie Center.

Yes, I believe it is a gas well cap. No, this one is not near the Tarr Ridge area, although there may be one in that area, I don't know.   This one is further east.   I easily found this along a well traveled official trail with help from a photo and conversation on this website from several years ago.

There's also a nice campsite that leaves on an unofficial trail at the end of that gravel road (now Double Arch Trail/Former Tunnel Ridge Road turnaround), where the overlook trail starts. As you descend down the wooden staircase to either Double Arch or towards Courthouse Rock, there is a higher trail to the right that leads out onto an overlook. You have the entire spine of Auxier Ridge to view from that campsite. Great spot as well!

How about this location? Where is this scramble located? For starters, this is obviously on an unofficial trail.

No, not in the Adena area. Since this one has been slightly difficult and to keep moving along, I will reveal and pass off to Mark for his valiant effort.

This is above the Martin's Fork Trailhead, on the Raven's Rock Overlook trail. This is one of the last scrambles before gaining access to the ridgetop. It's pretty precarious going down, that's for sure. A lot steeper than it looks in the second photo.

After heavy rains, this stream intermittently runs through this arch (of sorts).  Because of the karst formations it's usually dry, with the water flowing beneath the creek bed, and surfacing a bit farther downstream.  Before the official trail was rerouted a year or so ago, you used to pass right by this feature.  Can you name the stream?

I'm only aware of Whittleton Branch that runs through the area. I know there are 3-4 smaller tributaries, but I have never known them to have names nor seen a map with their identified names.

LOL I didn't know of any other branch in that other but Granny, but I sure didn't think Granny comes close enough to Whittleton to be the answer.  Of course, with all the off trail hiking you guys do one never really knows.

I'm guessing the feature is a rock shelter with a specific name, hard to tell from the photo but I don't see an arch. I have a rough idea where this might be. Is the road behind you either Spaas Creek Rd or East Indian Creek Rd?

Nope, nope and nope.  Haha, sorry.  In the view I posted behind me, if I turned anymore to the right, it would be a dead giveaway where I'm at.  How about this....the white spot off in the distance in the 2nd picture is a hugely popular offtrail landmark(feature).

You got it!  I was observing the other side of the horseshoe of Revenuer's.  Zoomed in it looks fascinating over there.  We tried for about 20 minutes to bushwhack over there but hardly made it anywhere and I twisted my ankle slipping off a blowdown I was walking along so we abandoned it.  I want to get over to that side sometime.  You're up...

Could be a bit of a stretch, but which unofficial trail is this strange tree located on? For reference, the tree rests against the other creating an arch that you must walk through to continue down the trial. This is West of Chimney Top & Half Moon. Hiker resting along trail, for reference.

This is killing me.  Like, I have to pack my bag and go to the Gorge tomorrow.  I have a couple other spots that it could be, but I just can't narrow it down!!!  LOL  Great picture. 

Can I ask, has this area been impacted by fire damage since that picture was taken?

Yeah, I know right. TRR is the best area, big sky country. It's much further West than the fire damage, so that pretty much limits the possibilities. :)

Sorry I forgot about this.  A hint is obviously needed.  If you follow Hinterlands to this location and somebody is already there (which is likely), you'll have to turn back, because  this photo pictured is the nearly the entire camp site. Also, if your child wakes up in the middle of the night and has to Pee pee, I'd suggest being extremely cautious.  My point is that there isn't much room for error if you take a wrong step.

Looks like you are on that little point that sticks out off of Auxier Ridge.  The sunrise would be over near Jailhouse Rock.  The picture is of the sunset dropping behind Auxier Ridge, with Courthouse Rock out of the frame to the right.  I'm guessing.

It's not Auxier, but the ridgeline in the photo is a little misleading. The large ridge to the right is separate from the ridge coming from the left of the photo. I also lightened the photo just a bit to better differentiate features.

Even after seeing the "hint", I still can't figure out where you are for sure. The topography only looks like something along KY77. I'll have a Homer Simpson "DOH" moment when I learn or finally realize where it is.

I've been quiet so I'll give it a shot.  One of the little ridges coming off from the Auxier Trial.  I'm thinking the trail turns hard left, but if you go straight you head out on this ridge pictured.  Closer to the trailhead than it is to Haystack Rock.

Nope, not Tarr Ridge. Much closer when Auxier Ridge was guessed.

Last clue. In the panorama, on the opposite ridge there is an outcropping with views so good they should be criminal. So where am I standing?

Ah yes, you are not standing on the Double Arch trail, but the Double Arch Spur/Connector trail? Regardless, this was a tough one. Did not recognize Jailhouse Rock at first, too far away to recognize.

Just for one final piece of closure for my last post - it was indeed near the Double Arch Spur/Connector, referred to by some as the Rocky Branch Overlook. Great views, if you haven't found it, go find it. Worth it.

Not sure of the exact name of the overlook, but you are facing South, looking at the backside of Cloudsplitter up above the Sheltowee Trace trail, off a spur trail from the ATV Freeway. There are several fingers that come off of that ridgeline and you are standing at one of rocky outcroppings.

That's an amazing photo. Cloudsplitter is an awesome feature, I really love this angle. That cliffside is gnarly looking, and certainly a decent drop.

I'm standing in a well-known area. There's a prominent feature just to the left of this photo that would give my location away, which I did not include for obvious reasons. Name where I'm standing or the general area.

Yep, this is where the climbing starts, at the far side of the actual arch.  It was my first time there, on Friday the 13th, and wearing a pair of Keens I had never hiked the gorge in.  They didn't grip the sandstone as well as any of my other boots, so I turned around at this spot, with plans to return another time.

Here's a little more help in the form of more pictures! For those who worry about over-sharing, I'm not. I am pretty sure we were the only people to have hiked this trail in months (at least on their own two feet). In fact, a few more people might actually help it. It doesn't have any hidden treasures or awesome destinations, but the general scenery was unspoiled and the stream splendid.

Same spot, different view.

Another hint. This trail is featured in the book we all know so well. Not much of a destination on its own but can be used to access bigger and better things. And its not all creek bed, you have to navigate some overgrown fields and a terribly steep hill climb. The only travelers on this path are usually of the four-legged and two headed variety.

LOL! I was trying to be punny. I guess I should have said six legs but only four that touch the ground. Excellent guess but still not right. Closest yet.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Itís way out there. If solitude is what you crave youíll find it and more. Just be ready to push through dense over grown fields, navigate muddy sections created from the horses (aka the four-legged and two-headed creatures), and be ready for the longest climb in the whole gorge. I would say it was 500í from creek to Ridge. Worth the struggle.

Booo, you're onto my strategy. YES! That's it. Here's a shot of the full extension trail heading out to Double Arch. https://imgur.com/lumIy1a (https://imgur.com/lumIy1a) It's pretty sketchy, but doable I believe. I was with my dog at the time so didn't attempt, but going to try it next time I'm in the area. You're up!

I didn't think it was possible to traverse that gap shown in your picture???  I've never attempted it but just going on what I thought I'd heard.  I've scrambled up the part in the right of your pic and took that all the way down to double arch which I also heard wasn't possible and I had no problems doing it. 
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: KYhiker40 on December 12, 2017, 09:09:42 PM
I have tried to cross that gap and it was the only time I've thought I was going to need S&R.  I came up from the Double Arch side, climbed up top, and continued on the Double Arch Extension Trail until I came to the steep decent.  At this point I sat down to take a break, set down my backpack, and proceeded to knock it down that steep decent.

Looking at my backpack down in that gap, I realized my car keys and cell phone were both in the pack.  I knew I could make it down safely, so I proceeded down the hill and retrieved my pack.  At this point I was stuck.  With no climbing gear I had no where to proceed forward to the Rocky Mountain Overlook.  I was 90% sure I could climb up the way I came, but I don't take 10% chances with my life. So I spent the next hour or so looking for a weakness in the cliff side to scramble down.  It was the dead of summer, so overgrowth was heavy, but I finally found a root ladder of sorts and worked my way down to the Double Arch Trail below. 

Take this one serious.  You don't want to try it. 

So, here's the pic.  Where am I?

Dang.  I was sure I nailed it.  I have no idea if this overlook has a name.  I don't recall ever making a point to visit The Trail to Nowhere, so that could be it.  I have a horrible habit of following everything that looks like it might have been a trail at some point in the last century.

I'm sure this is probably quickly identifiable, but it's a nudge to get out and see the frozen water falls.  This was from last Friday and I'm sure it's much farther along now.  I'd bet Creation Falls is completely frozen by now (it was about 1/2 last Friday), I've seen pictures of Broke Leg falls already frozen top to bottom, Bell's Falls nearly frozen, and Copperas Creek Falls with an 8 foot ice volcano at its base.

Let's try Flat Iron.

It does look a lot like Flat Iron at first glance, but I don't believe that it is due to hillside in the photo. Flat Iron sits at the edge of a ridge. sweeper certainly has me stumped. My first thoughts were both Powder Mill and Flat Iron due to the perfect "arch-like" shape of the roof. However, it's not either. You must be on Hatton Hollow Trail, but I don't know the official name of this arch. You win sweeper, I can't figure it out.

Not Hatton Hollow. Very close. This trail connects from Spaas Creek. And near as I can tell, this feature does not have a recognized name.

The full story is less than flattering. I was aiming to explore Camp Branch, but missed that valley and found this instead. Anyway, Bazinga, you were the first to guess the right region (let's just say it's near Hatton Ridge) so feel free to post the next picture.

I'll guess somewhere along one of the open glades along TRR.  That Chinese silver grass in your photo is one of the worst invasive plants in RRG.  It crowds out natives and has poor nutritional value.  Unfortunately it has spread, particularly in the fields and forest edges.

RCKT_RCCN:

The first freeze in early January resulted in a complete freeze of the falls from top to bottom.  I couldn't make the hike then to see the falls, but I know a bunch of folks did.  Somewhere I saw a picture of some people ice climbing the falls (was that on this site?).  There was a thaw followed by a second freeze and a 2-3 inch snow fall about two weeks ago.  That was when this picture was made.

That's what I figured; I made it out there the first weekend of the year when it was completely frozen. I am just impressed by how the cone remained in tact, then actually grew from the first full freeze. I am sure the snow added to the surreal scene.

Yup! Sheltowee Trace. Honestly, it's been so long ago, I can't recall if this was between Klaber and Hale Branches or closer to Cloudsplitter. Regardless, you are on point. The trail actually does drop down a bit into this rock shelter. Further north near Corner Ridge Rd, there's a large, flat clearing on the ST that has a massive bolder right in the middle. Makes a great campsite if you ever find yourself in that area. Give us your best!

Not sure if that is a photo of an arch or just a shelter, mid-way in the cliffline, but it reminds me of the Douglas Trail. Possibly near Eagle Point Buttress.

No, as I said, the location is somewhat like a wildlife park.  It has a large parking area for access right by Rt 11 and is easy to get to after crossing the middle fork.

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on March 18, 2018, 09:35:53 AM
Thedayhascome is sort of correct. From the large parking area, the Graining Fork Nature Preserve is accessed by crossing Route 11 to the East, while the Zoo arches and climbing area is accessed by crossing over the middle fork on the West side of Route 11 (they are across the road from each other).  It's a short hike and a not too difficult climb up to the arches/area if you want to check it out.  Your turn thedayhascome.

Good guess, it's not along Swift Camp Creek, but it is located very close to water.

One more guess... from Bison, right on the Sheltowee, pass a few creek crossing, just off the trail out of view.

All great guesses so far, it's not near Bison or Sheltowee trails either, but it is located directly in the middle of an unofficial trail.

What concerns me most is that there are that many campsites that have rock loungers built like this.

Not Buzzards Roost. Since there appear to be so many of these campsites, it's going to be difficult to guess correctly. Bazinga was the closest guess with Copperas. This campsite is actually along the Douglas Trail at the Clifty Creek crossing, also referenced in Hinterlands.

It is off trail but you take a main trail to get within a half mile or less of it.  I know other people have been there, other than the people I have taken, but no idea how many. Probably not many.

This is one of about 10 waterfalls I documented in the actual gorge proper this winter that I had no idea existed and are breathtaking. Was really eye opening since I always thought the gorge lacked waterfalls.

I'd like to know where this waterfall is, but I would not like to see it publicized online. This is exactly the type of thing that detailing exactly how to find it would likely lead to it being trashed.

If you choose to say where it is, please consider just posting the official trail and approximate location. Thanks

Believe it or not, almost 30 years ago Iron Maiden did a concert in Cincinnati and their plane had mechanical issues near Slade.  They literally made an emergency landing on a corn field.  Just so happens that their base player, Steve Harris, grew up on the outskirts of London near Waltham Forest. Somehow this came up on TV during the 2012 London Olympics, as apparently Steve Harris was a well know outdoormans and deer hunter and had a reputation with his bow.  Anyhow, back to the topic at hand, upon landing in the corn field and getting everything sorted out, Steve convinced one of the local farmhands to take him and a couple members of the band on some exploring of the local land and Steve left this hiking stick atop that arch.

I think I found your secret spot, and it's weird how it happened. I believe (likely wrong but my best guess since no one else tried) that this is out past the overlook along Star Gap Ridge due north of Andrews Arch. I think you were looking for Andrew's and found this spot instead.

So how do I come to guess this? Google Maps search for Slade yielded this photo:

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/OZm7Hea7n7U22p6HkwV3wg9LQcsh-4TDUXwgQh7gQO0KevpeDxaYBooas1B1pj5jbmCGeWUNvfZRTfv48yIf3d9f9IZnHuS3IZFEUjwXnL347N8MghOfpt6QFZoyWHgW60YOLxMOAp1b8MHyfDXxSjdNV6m9g4BTjbep9Yoecpn83-JGXYfhrTVzztXgix5cxHV0STdiKmV9MOHlF6vHcES5mWztMCqBYWoNhkG9Umu3az69Vco6ilxHjOmhfn05gPYsdM5e6cBrWwjOfdA1XuRs0LY4rjkGCngAD27eY0vO-l2m-8gOjuyNLu_bi8VDHbj9Ky80lXgtIrYuzn00xTEQp-GHaBVLnjoHdA9TBEAT_Ry6EXP8W54fKhhB5gjmv2Z7yA54SKrIyCVltTI0QcXHeZdXwiTOBb3grkiTVuSRSh3fdH_yJBj3LkG7kVcbUFdOcZrfKV3LxyLgJKTr--HV5-_m0mdhgw_SaNh_y0_8ucwRCEJbmLFD3qpEBTqd1gKMDhet8R9xBo_PtzmDNe_ol5yKkNid4uUAzH2sLPvwmpSE8rVtBBlwQTq7fC5P1e60FbJQGeGuUCXuy1zuRALsSxg8ysX0jBrPRbZ4ZGwlux2VknPgH1NVm_i16Pjnsfwr-aRnitrorNTu85pHykybwaGPUUHf=w949-h593-no)

It's not my photo, but the depressed area with the trees on the right-hand side looks similar to what you posted, with an edge of rock ringing an area of trees. So there, my best guess from a random photo stumbled upon in google maps. Does this WAG grant me the chance to know the real answer? ;)

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on August 06, 2018, 10:55:12 PM
Directions:  Both waterfalls are mainly wet water waterfalls.  When hiking uphill, the second waterfall, with a drop of about 30 feet, is found off to your left, across a ravine and can be heard but not seen because of the leaf cover.  It drains down into the ravine.  A bit further up the trail is the first waterfall, with a drop of about 10 feet, just to the left of the trail.  That waterfall is along the path of the creek that drains into the ravine.  Above the waterfall the trail runs directly beside the creek for 10-15 yards.  If you are hiking downhill then everything is in reverse.  Clear as mud?  Name the location.
Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on August 11, 2018, 09:00:30 PM

Title: Re: Where in the Red?
Post by: copper creek on August 15, 2018, 04:34:55 PM
Yes the smaller waterfall is on Whittleton Branch. The trail passes right beside it.  The other waterfall is across Whittleton Branch from the main trail.  You would need to hike off trail, drop down to the branch, and go up to the falls.  As the bird flies, that waterfall is maybe 40-50 yards from the Whittleton Branch trail.  When the leaves are down you can see the waterfall from the trail.

These are close to each other.  One is trail side and the other can be heard from the trail but not seen unless you look very carefully.  Can you name the trail area where these are found?

first:

if this is the main falls, when it's going well a small falls comes out of a hole to the right on the face.

nice pics, btw

Hints,

It on private property.
It is documented on Bill's DVD's
It is fairly well known, at least seems that way to me.
This is taken from the less 'shot' or photogenic side of the arch.

If no one still gets it I'll post a picture from the other side.

Man, that picture brought back lots of memories.  Climbed that rock many times with my son 25 years ago.  There were many days when there was a que of people going up and down.  We spent nights on the top while backpacking with numerous other backpackers.  One day as we waited in line to climb to the top, we noticed the line hadn't moved for too long of a time.  Upon investigating, I found that a young girl had stopped at the small cave on the way up and would not go up or down.  She was frozen there for better part of an hour.  Finally, I climbed up to her and steadied her feet with my hands and I talked her down.  Took about 15 minutes or so.  She was so scared, she wouldn't talk and never said a word even after we got her down.
 
I'll post something new here shortly.

I was afraid it could be tough. A couple helpful points. I did zoom in, so this isn't an iPhone type photo. You'll have to think big picture here. There's a landmark out of frame that would immediately give this away.

 I also believe I'm facing a SW direction. That should help eliminate any north-facing overlooks.

If you're referring to the ridgeline in the picture (rather than the overlook where I took the photo), no idea. But I'd like to know too!

I believe there are cabins at the base of the cliff, I wonder if it's possible to access from below there.

There are buildings down there and I'm not sure of its private/public status since it's not part of the Red proper forest land mgmt. Can always drive up the road and ask around. Not sure if it's even feasible to scramble up those walls. I'll wait for someone else to do it!

To help get it going I'm taking a guess. It looks like you're behind a waterfall or a drip-line. Right in the middle of the photo I think is the waterfall, and based on the amount of sun shining on your location I'd have to guess a southerly facing photo - are you below eagle point falls? I don't think you are, but then again the only time I've been there was a volcano of ice at the base. :)

Reposting the hint, and adding that it's north of the Red.

I'm scratching my head and wondering why no one else has guessed. I sincerely don't know so I'm not help either!

I haven't guessed cause I don't have a clue where that's at.  Maybe there should be a time limit?

A month with no activity. Crazy. Maybe Sweeper just needs to tell us. Or I need to go find my copy of hinterlands and start guessing.

4 months and a day since the original photo.  I feel bad when my pics haven't been guessed in a week and start hinting them out stopping short of spelling out the answer.  Haha

Everyone on this site has been there (but may not have seen it from this angle).  All of the tourist even visit.

Hey Bazinga, that was a good one! Initially it appeared to be Sky Bridge from the river. That threw me. Then I got to looking at the scale of the trees against the height of the arch... hmm, the arch looks to be less than 10 feet high... aha!

So I'm gonna go ahead and get this thread rolling (I hope!)
Here are 2 pics from the same ridge, on a mid February morning, 2018.
This should be quite easy. Name the ridgetop and the road I'm looking at:

Still sunny:

Red River Adventure Campground below, between 715 and the river?  From Tarr Ridge?  Is that a chain ladder attached to the cliff face?

You got it, copper creek!!
I call that west Tarr Ridge, with 77 dividing it from what I call middle Tarr Ridge and then east Tarr Ridge is the high (1280ft) ridge that is blocking the view of Chimney Top and Cloudsplitter. Revenuer Rock is across the Red to it's right, I think.

I'm not seeing a chain ladder anywhere... but then my eyesight isn't what it used to be. :-[

Good eye, those are climbing chains.  Used on sport routes to clean 'get all your gear back' the route when you are done climbing.

Ha! I remember my hiking bud, Steve pointing those out at the time, but I wasn't paying too much attention. Busy checking the scenery and framing the pic.
At my age, I find it hard to multitask.  :P

OK. I'll go ahead and throw out another one if nobody minds... feel free to put up your own if you think I'm out of line.

Anyway... Here goes:

I have recently replied to other member's posts and when I hit 'post' or 'preview' I get taken back to the login page... like it forgets I was logged in. It does this repeatedly. Like it falls asleep at the wheel.

I have used Firefox for years but I have found that other browsers work better with some websites.  I frequently use an "old" version of Internet Explorer for really stubborn programs.  IP security cameras seem to be very browser specific.  I am presently using the "new" Edge Chrome development browser and it seems better and faster than Firefox.  You might try logging in with a totally different browser to see if that helps.  Before I switched to Edge Chrome, I noticed that using Firefox, this site would not keep me logged in.  No matter what I checked, I had to log in each and every time I visited this site.  I have no idea why.  It doesn't do it with Edge Chrome.

Lol! Yeah, just past the restroom, through the heavily camped area and out the northeast side and down a small rock ledge, and you are out on a sweet little overlook.
