Loop hike through wooded forest, rocky hillsides This short loop trail is best hiked in a clockwise direction. This allows for a gradual climb for the majority of the hike, and a steep descent at the end. The trail is well marked with red rectangles in the clockwise direction and red triangles in the counter-clockwise direction. The trail leads through the beginnings of Cull Hollow. The hike is entirely through the hard wood forest that Bernheim is famous for. About half way through the hike, is a very interesting hillside, full or rocky ledges and large stones strewn about. This is a nice area to explore, and can be the scene of small waterfalls after rains. This area is also frequented by deer and turkeys. At about the 1 mile point, the steep descent of about 200' will lead you back to the parking lot. You will be surprised by the elevation you have gained.

Great trail! There are dozens in this area ranging from a half mile up to 13 miles and dogs are welcome on all of them :)
*the address this app lists is incorrect* it wil bring you to their employee service entrance lol but just use Google Bernheim Forest & you'll get you there!

Go counter clockwise and get the beast over with. Good hill. At first, the rest is smooth sailing.

Nice trail if you don't have all day, yet there's a fun creek and small waterfall if you do.

My husband and I took this trail yesterday. We are in agreement that the initial hill is a killer which made the rest of the trail seem easier. For our over 60 fellow hikers, we highly recommend trekking poles for this hike. The walk was unique at this time of the year because of the huge acorns both on the path and falling from overhead. Amazing trees! Interesting rolling hills. We would enjoy coming back and doing it again when there is water.

We had a difficult time finding this with the direction of near Lebanon Junction. When we used google map, still no luck. Finally figured out that it was part of Bernheim Forest nature center.
