U.S.Forest Service-Daniel Boone National Forest
Forest fire at Sky Bridge, Red River Gorge - An escaped campfire caused a wildfire this weekend at Sky Bridge. The area is currently closed to the public while firefighters work to establish fire containment lines. The fire is expected to burn 125 acres at containment. Please avoid the Sky Bridge area until further notice. Only firefighters and emergency personnel are allowed in the vicinity at this time. All of Highway 715 in the gorge remains open to public vehicles, but Forest Service Road #245 that leads to the Sky Bridge recreation area is closed. Friendly Reminder - Campfires are currently banned in the general forest area and in dispersed, non-developed recreation areas, such as the Red River Gorge. Campfires are allowed only in developed recreation areas of the Daniel Boone National Forest where metal/concrete fire rings or grills are installed by the Forest Service. In the Red River Gorge backcountry, please note that rock circles for campfires are user-developed, not Forest Service developed or installed. DBNF law enforcement officials extinguished nearly 20 illegal campfires in the gorge this past weekend, which had been abandoned and left smoldering.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
