Broke Leg Falls
Broke Leg Falls is about 7 miles from Red Bird Rentals. The photo below is one of the last I took before an EF3 tornado hit the area in March 2012. The trees won't recover in my lifetime, but clean-up crews have made a lot of progress.
Cave Run Lake
Cave Run Lake is about 15 miles from our property. Longbow Boat Ramp and Marina is your best bet if you plan to bring a boat on vacation with you. Rt. 1274 has reopened after two years of construction projects, and you'll be able to see the impressive results of that work as you drive towards Longbow. The lake offers many fun activities, from swimming to boating to fishing and more.
Menifee County Park
The county park is under 3 miles from our rental properties and offers several covered picnic shelters, two baseball fields, three unique play areas, a skate park, and a large outdoor pool.
Natural Bridge is about 20 miles away, through the Red River Gorge. The bridge itself is easily accessible via an enjoyable ride on the Sky Lift.
Or if you prefer to hike, there are trails leading up to the bridge, too.
Red River Adventure
Located 11 miles from Red Bird Rentals, Red River Adventure provides kayak and canoe rentals in the Red River Gorge. The photo below comes from their website:
