One of my favorite hikes nearby. The view is amazing and even better in the fall.

This was a good hike, once you make it to the top. The view was great.

Short hike to a great view. Well maintained trails.

Gorgeous views and a moderate hike. Great place to trail run or day hike.

Trail was great but the side trail devils kitchen was shown as a loop and it’s not.

Kind of a straight up trail but the view is awesome.

The view is certainly worth the uphill hike. I’m not super-fit and took quite a few extended breaks on the way up. But steady and slow will get you there!

We enjoyed the West Pinnacle today with friends. The trail is wide and gravel most of the way with more rocky terrain as you gain altitude. There are so steep portions but otherwise a moderate hike. Saw some wild flowers along the way. There’s an impressive rock formation at the top and a modest view. There’s not a ton of space to enjoy the view. We’ve heard the East Pinnacle has a better view. That’s where we’ll go next time!

Absolutely beautiful views! It's a real thigh-burner though. Best to go when it's a bit cooler out or early morning before the summer heat.

This is a very nice trail that is well marked. My wife and I didn’t think it was very hard. Just a short drive from Lexington.

This is my favorite place to be! It's so peaceful at the top.

great view at the top.

Visited from out of state. Great views and fairly easy trail. It was a little busy for my liking and there was some trash but definitely a great time.

Great hike with a rock scramble up a crevasse then left up an other scramble to the top an on to the trail. The views will be better in the fall or when the leaves fall. But I saw no other hikers on this trail.

A warm Sunday at Berea Pinnacles. Love exploring and seeing new sights. Very good views once you make the climb up to the ridges. I like to see the views in the fall, bet there gorgeous!

First half easy, second half a nice moderate climb. View would be stunning in Fall. Lots of dogs on trail. Add the .2 to devils kitchen. Nice to see the rock formations.

This wasn’t really what I would call a hike. Seemed more like a stroll through a park. Don’t get me wrong, there are some uphill trails that will get your legs and lungs working, but some of the overlooks weren’t that great. East Pinnacle had a bunch of trees blocking the view and there was broken glass scattered along most of the trails. Eagle’s Nest was a beautiful view of the area, though. These trails are highly trafficked. We went on a Sunday morning, and by noon, there were lots of people around. It’s a decent trail but nothing to spectacular.

Leads you to a very peaceful place. Pack lunch!

Very well marked! But at the end it can be hard to scale the last boulder! But once you get over it, it is amazing

very beautiful

This trail is beautiful. Although the straight uphill climb is difficult, it’s worth it for the view from the lookout.

Love this trail, beautiful views, variety of terrain and an easy hike. It can get crowded and hikers with dogs let them poop on the trails and some ignorant littering, otherwise it would've been a 4 star.

Moderate hike. Beautiful views for the payoff though. Well maintained. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Absolutely gorgeous at the top! Didn’t want to leave.

Awesome trail! A sassy cat followed us up to west pinnacle and Indian fort lookout and then followed another group of hikers back up as we were heading down. I hope he got back home to the berea auditorium!!!
