High Bridge, Kentucky is a small community located on the lower reaches of the Kentucky River near the mouth of the Dix River into the Kentucky and fairly near the mouth of the Kentucky River into the Ohio. It is noted for a very high railroad bridge over the Kentucky River nearby which gives the community its name, and for a brand of bottled water named for the community which depicts the bridge on its label. The Kentucky River runs through a deep gorge for most of the lower portion of its length and most of the bridges over it in the area are relatively high ones.
