Red River Gorge Multi-Sport

  • Date: Thursday, October 11th, 2018 through Sunday, October 14th, 2018
  • Time: All Day
  • Location: Red River Gorge, KY

Wanting to get outside over Fall Break, but not sure what exactly you want to do.  This trip is perfect for you!  Dip your toes in a little bit of everything during this 4-day Multi-Sport trip to the wild and beautiful Red River Gorge. Nestled into the Daniel Boone National Forest, the Red River Gorge has a lot to offer. On your trip we will be able to spend time rock climbing on 300 million-year-old sandstone and limestone, hike among the trees through rugged terrain to see the great features of the Gorge, including Whittleton Arch, one of the largest arches in the area, and paddle down the Red River.

Each night we’ll camp in a front-country site so there’ll be working bathrooms and more convenient amenities.  We may even sample some of the local food spots if time allows.  ORAC will provide all transportation, campsite fees, equipment, guiding, etc.  All you need to worry about is clothes, food, and a water bottle.  Bring your camera as the fall colors in the gorge are gorge-ous!
