    Interest Check: Spring Red River Gorge Hang Out

    I am looking at hosting a hang out at the Red River Gorge. This time I thought about maybe camping at Indian Staircase. There are 2 ways to get to the top of Indian Staircase. One way uses the existing trail system and the other way would include some rock climbing. Both ways lead to a multitude of beautiful campsite situated on top of a very scenic ridge. You are looking at 1.5 to 2 mile hike in to get to the campsites

    There is also another potential location in the same area that is situated on the Red River. It's about a 3 mile hike in and includes a beach and a swimming in the river (weather permitting). Of course we could also hold the hang out at the same site used for the last few gatherings.

    I voted for May. I'll be at Hot Springs in April, and need to build back up some brownie points between hangouts...

    Wish I could, but I'm saving $$ and vacation time for a trip back east during TrailDays. I think I miss the smell.

    dang! good catch. I was in the doghouse for a long time for choosing to run in my favorite 1/2 marathon that was scheduled one year on mother's day.

    the doghouse is cold and lonely. Deal me out of that weekend

    Man, do I want to go to this one, but I think it will be too close to my BWCA trip.
