Overview

Clifton Road is a favorite for both locals and those who drive hours from afar to tackle the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway. You are immediately captivated by the trail's essence the moment you lay your eyes on Clifton Creek and start driving upstream. As you continue, white pines project their peaceful presence as you weave up and over mounds and through rocky creek beds. With the echoes of water trickling down at the cave, you will want to line your wheeling mates up for the photos you can share with your family and friends. It is no wonder that so many people mention Clifton Road when talking about offroading in the Red River Gorge area.
