suggestions please

My wife & I are going to be visiting the Red River Gorge area near Campton KY in mid June for a few days. Coming down to try Via Ferrata with Torrent Falls and then originally going to do some day-hiking. However she keeps reading warnings cautioning hikers about all the rattlesnakes. So other than a day at Natural Bridge state park, may not do much hiking. Enter the jeep. Looks like there are numerous forest service roads in the area, but I have seen forest service roads that were nothing more than a plain gravel road and I have seen ones out west that would require 37s, lockers & a ground guide to get thru. Can anyone here recommend something in between that is tame enough to still be fun (small rocks, easy creek crossings) and has good scenery but that can be done by a couple of newbies in her bone stock JKU Sport?

There are several trails in the gorge/natural bridge area that are simple to extreme but nothing is marked. So telling someone where to go is difficult. You can look for sand lick rd on google maps. That's a good starting point. Just pick a trail off of that you may have to turn around on some of them. I am going up there this weekend with a group who knows the area very well. If I learn a good trail to send you to I will let you know.

No pavement no problems (till Monday)

Thanks Scout, I appreciate that. I"ll see what I can find out about Sand Lick Road. Maybe the Forrest Service site will have some useful info.
