“This is "Indian Creek" which is the car camping mecca of the Red River Gorge.”— Chris Chaney
Family Friendly Easy grades and well maintained gravel road. Avoid during high motor vehicle traffic times.
About a mile before the road fades into the forest there is a new stream crossing where there was once a concrete ford. Recently the USFS has gone through a stream remediation project which has opened up the East Fork of Indian Creek for fish to move more freely while cleaning up a lot of silt deposited in the pools formed behind two such concrete fords.
Currently there is a dry weather crossing to gain access to the deeper reaches of 9b.
