Sky Bridge Station - Red River Gorge/Natural Bridge KY Trip - Planning Thread

A couple weeks ago 3 of us headed to Red River Gorge for a ride and a first of the season camping trip. While there, we stopped at a place for some food and drink that ended up to be a great find. It is the Sky Bridge Station. It sits at a crossroads between RRG and NB on 715. It has a great beer selection (featuring a lot of West Six beers ) and some killer specialty hotdogs and other food stuffs.

They also have hostel rooms available and charge $17 for a bed or $70 for a room. I am getting information on their group rates and when they are not booked. I am adding their information below so you can also check out their site and see what else they may have to offer. They are now open every day for the rest of their season.

What I would like to do is be able to go to them with a solid number and date of a trip. I will post my available weekends now through June (I have a 6 week commitment from June through July) as a response. Please chime in with available dates.

Right now, they dont have much booked in May, so they said to get some solid dates and let them know ASAP, as they will be filling quick.

Ok, I have 3 confirmed and a couple strong maybe's. I am going to go ahead and pull the trigger for the weekend of May 2-3. For those of us in Louisville, that is Derby Weekend. Personally, I try and get out of town that weekend.

Price will be $70, + any taxes, split evenly among those staying.

Date: May 2-3, Derby Weekend

While there is a slight chance in the weather not cooperating or they are full that weekend, we will reschedule after the 4th of July weekend.

The room has been reserved for May 2-3. It will be $70 + tax once we all get there. I have 2 guys coming in from other areas (from other forums) so that will put 4 at this time in the room.

When we get closer to the date, we can figure out where to meet up and ride down.

Send me a message with your phone number in case we get there at different times.

It is either 5 or 6. I have not actually seen them. There are 4 so far spoken for. We will figure it out come that Saturday.

Will be my first time staying there.

There are also campgrounds right around the corner, too. Pretty nice ones, at that.

We have just over 10 days until this trip commences. I don't have any weather information yet, but the week leading up to it is being typical KY weather - threatening to do anything we expect it not to.

I will make the go/no go call on that Thursday, April 30. I have to give them at least 24 hours notice.

That being said, if I call a no go, and the weather ends up being perfect, we can still make the ride and just do individual beds in the hostel or head to the nearby camp site.

Check out Miguel's Pizza while you're in the area too. No beer, but damn good pizza. I hear Red River Rockhouse is a good place to eat too. Be cautious on the low lying roads in the area, they may be dirty. I haven't been through there in a while, but we've had tons of rain over the last few weeks and I know some of the roads flooded. If this isn't an off road/ds trip let me know if you need any route suggestions.

Everything is looking good for the weekend. There is a 40% chance of rain on Sunday as of now, but as that is on the way out, the only thing I am worrying about is remembering to pack the waterproof gear.

Saturday is supposed to be a max of 77 and clear (low 55). Sounds near perfect to me.

As the week goes on I will update, and then I will put the meeting spot for Louisville and an approximate time we will be at the Sky Bridge Station.

Here are my initial thoughts for the meetup time/place. This will give people a place to meet, and those staying, we should be able to drop off gear and get checked in. It will allow everyone to make their own schedule for getting there when and how they want to. I know from where I am in Louisville, the shortest time period will be about 2 hours via expressway, much longer otherwise. At this point, there are no actual routes planned. If someone has one they want to do, by all means, we can do it. I was personally hoping to get into Natural Bridge SP for a bit as I recently (March) rode through Red River Gorge.

Time: 12:00 PM (Noon)
Place:
Sky Bridge Station
