Love all the trails on the Pinnacles. most people do not refer to this as Berea Forest Trail. The Pinnacles. you can take different trails and hike as much as you would like. Beautiful overlooks on all sides. you can put in around 6 miles if you hike all the major trails. Love it here! moderate with a few areas of more moderate.

Great place to take your k-9 to exert so energy. plan on giving him or her a bath when you get home if you go on a wet day. Beautiful hike and a little challenging at some spots. Definitely will return.

Love this location. They have made some recent changes to close one of the trail heads from the main entrance but you can still access the main trails. There are trail options for all endurance levels to enjoy the beauty. East Pinnacle is the main attraction and can be crowded. I was not able to enjoy the full view from the West Pinnacle because it involved some climbing and I was pleased anyway.

My son and I along with our dog hiked this area today. The steep climbs are trying but short. There is abundant shade which makes it cooler than it actually is. The views are good but maybe not great. There was little traffic on the trails with maybe passing one other group on each of the legs. Our dog, albeit young and athletic, had no trouble and was the only canine seen. There was a little bit of trash around. Trails are in great shape. I would recommend it and likely do I this area again.

Great set of trails, with some steep areas that our dogs had a hard time with. Lots of places to sit in the shade and enjoy the views with snacks or lunch. There are NO restrooms anywhere in the parking or hiking area though!! Decent amount of litter and some of the overlooks need a trim of overgrowth too unfortunately. . .

Trails are well kept and marked. Steady to steep inclines lead to views. Suggest going to East Pinnacle first then Indian Fort Lookout. Wonderful views of KY hills. Going to Indian Fort first requires steep long hike up. West Pinnacle view was disappointing. Go early on weekends to avoid crowds. Take plenty of water. Be prepared to hike up quite a bit.
