  • Red River Gorge winter road closures

    The gravel roads to Chimney Top, Rock Bridge and Indian Creek in the Red River Gorge are now closed to motorized vehicles. The closures are intended to prevent road surface damages during periods of heavy rainfall and winter freeze-thaw. Non-motorized travel is allowed past closed gates, but vehicle parking in front of the gates is prohibited to avoid blocking emergency vehicle access.

    In cooperation with Powell County, Tunnel Ridge Road will remain open through the winter season. For more information, call 606-784-6428 or visit the forest Facebook page at
