Exploring the Red River Gorge & Creation Falls

Back during Spring Break, we drove our family down to the Red River Gorge area to stay there and hike together. There's just something about getting everyone out in the great outdoors that is so healing. 
On this day, we drove out to a trail head and hiked our way through the woods to Creation Falls.

The trail from the parking lot to the falls was about a mile long. There were benches to stop and rest along the way. And although the hike felt pretty easy on the way out, I noticed we were going downhill the whole time...meaning we would be going uphill all the way back. We always make sure to bring a good amount of water with us and healthy snacks to keep our bodies moving while we're out. And since we're in nature, we're not in a hurry. We make sure to take time to stop if one of us needs to or just enjoy the areas we find ourselves in. 

The kiddos found lots of opportunities to climb up on rocks and challenge themselves. We kept a close eye but didn't want to hinder them since they were being careful and respectful of their surroundings and each other. 

I was all smiles when we made it to Creation Falls. It's a smaller waterfall but that made it very family friendly for us. We could walk across the stream and make our way down to the bottom of the falls were there was a sandbar. The sound of the waterfall? The bright green hue of the trees and plants around us? The smell in the air? Y'all, I could have stayed there for quite a while and been content.

What I love the most about hiking with my family is that it challenges all of us and gives us countless opportunities to work as a team, encourage each other, and give each other high-fives as we meet the challenges we find. It's a wonderful way to bond as a family and remind each of us that there are beautiful places to explore and enjoy. 

In another post, I'll share with you just about the VRBO house we stayed in. I think you may want to look it up, too. I'll also share about our hike out to the Natural Bridge in the Red River Gorge. 

If y'all haven't been down there yet, you need to make plans to get there. I'm itching to go back again and explore different trails. Gosh, I love living in Kentucky! :) 

Keep your eyes on Instagram. I'll be sharing a reel there with some video from our hike. 

Do you enjoy hiking? Do you hike with a family? 
I would love to hear about places we should look into as a family. Share with me in the comments so I can add your recommendation to my list. 

Love y'all!
