Ridgerunner Trail

Pine Mountain State Resort Park

Pineville, Kentucky


About

This path primarily explores an upland forest ridge typical of the Southern Appalachians. The route descends from a small picnic shelter and skirts a woodland pond. Beyond, hikers soon emerge onto the shoulder of the park roadway for a few hundred yards before reentering the forest. A short distance after re-entering the forest, hikers will encounter a fork in the path at the beginning of the loop portion of the trail. Hikers should bear right at this point and continue on to the top of the ridge. A steep, side spur path descends into Devil's Gulch and intersects the other side of the trail loop. If a less strenuous hike is preferred, then stay the course as the trail continues across the ridge and eventually merges for a short distance with Honeymoon Falls Trail. Hikers should bear left where the trails intersect. After some distance, the paths part again and hikers should again bear left to continue the trail. The loop portion of the trail closes at the trail fork encountered earlier. At that point, hikers should bear right and retrace their steps along the road shoulder, beside the pond, and on to the picnic shelter. Elevation change of 250 feet and marked with fluorescent pink blazes.
