• Description

    Contrary to the name you certainly won't feel imprisoned. The solitude of this trail and being on Jailhouse Rock is probably one of our favorite places in Red River Gorge. Have you ever had one of those days where you just want to sit outside alone and enjoy nature? yeah we have too. This is the PERFECT hike to take and clear your mind. The hike is fairly easy with a few rock scrambles. They aren't difficult but do require that you take your time. The trail is unmarked and can be very easy to get lost but hey that's what we are for. Our guides will show you the path to the most breathtaking view. We suggest wearing pants during this hike as the trail is a little overgrown in places.

  • Trip Dates

    Nothing will stop us from taking you on this hike. Rain, snow, sleet or hail is no match for us. Wait, maybe not during a hail storm. We have dates available year round for our Jailhouse Rock hike.

  • Meals

    Are you kidding me? This isn't Golden Corral! On our short day hikes we don't provide meals. However, feel free to bring along anything you want. A large pizza would be nice. Maybe even some ranch dressing for it.

  • Gear We Provide

    On this trip and most of our other day hikes we won't be providing any gear.

  • What Gear To bring

    The main thing we suggest is a small daypack. This will allow you to carry snacks or any additional items you may want to bring. Feel free to bring a hammock along as we always do.

  • What Clothes To Bring

    As with any trip this mainly depends on the weather. For this hike specifically we recommend pants. The trail is unmarked and a little grown up in places. Feel free to ask Jonathan what happens when you wear shorts on this trail.
