Summary

One of the newer areas in the Red River Gorge with loads of climbing from easy up to the 5.13 range. The cliffs are listed left to right as if you would follow the "fingers" of the MFRP.

Description

The Miller Fork Recreational Preserve (MFRP) is a 309-acre tract of land in Lee County, Kentucky, that the RRGCC closed on in May of 2012 with the help of the Access Fund’s Land Conservation Campaign.

Access issues

The RRGCC received grant money from the Access Fund to help make a $45,000 down payment, and has a plan in place to make five yearly mortgage payments of $40,000, after which the RRGCC will own the MFRP, securing climbing access on that land in perpetuity.

Approach

The Miller Fork parking lot, completed in the summer of 2014 with help from local oil and construction companies, is just before a wide creek on Hell Creek Road. Driving directions from Miguel's is to continue south on KY 11 just past Koop's gas station on the right. Turn left on Shoemaker Ridge Rd. and follow for 3.5 miles and you will then as the road continues left you will drive straight down on a gravel road called Hell Creek Rd. Go down the hill all the way until the first intersection and turn right. Follow for another mile until you reach the parking area. You may also drive in / out in direction Beatyville if you take a right at the first turn after the parking (on your way out) and cross the creek. After a bit you cross another creek and the road climbs up to reach KY 11.
