“one of the oldest managed private forests in the United States”
The Berea College Forest is one of the oldest managed private forests in the United States. The forest has been producing wood products and drinking water for Madison County since 1898. The trail system is open to the public year-round.
Such a cool place to go hiking! It's just outside the town of Berea which, because of the local university, is really cute and pretty with a beautiful college campus. The park has a bunch of different hiking trails, my favorite led up to an overlook called the Eagle's Nest and had great views of the rolling hills. Also a cool spot where you walk over a hole in the ground that looks down into a cave in the cliff below you. Very good day-trip, can also be combined with a visit to the bourbon trail.
Beautiful view! A little steep at the beginning and end. Only 1.3 miles to the West Pinnacle- worth the hike.
Great place to hike. We stopped on the way home just to get out of the car for a while. Be prepared for some steep climbs. The views are well worth it though.
Incredible overlook! You can see for miles! Easy hike to the pinnacle. A great park to visit though and not very busy.
Awesome views. If it just rained, though, do yourself a favor and skip it.
