“A Nice Hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I am from the area, so I am very familiar with the trail, but it never gets old. The trek up is about a mile and a half, but it isn't strenuous. It definitely requires some planning on the clothing front, but other than that it is fairly easy. It is all worth it to see the view from either pinnacle. Any hikers or nature lovers who visit the area should come here!

“Adventurous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I have been to Pinnacles on the Mountain Day. Great way to celebrate this day with your friends. You can also watch sunrise and stay for the whole day to enjoy various activities.

“Quite a Walk, But the View is Worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Walking up to the Pinnacles will take a lot of energy. But the view of Berea in the valley, the mountains, and the wildlife up close make the trek worth it!

“I slept in Eagles Nest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I really liked these hiking trails. They are absolutely magnificent. During Mountain Day I hiked up there and camped out in Eagles Nest. It was a hike for sure, but I really loved the view and experience. It definitely made me thankful for my legs and amazed that I could do it.
It was such a great hike! Also, they have nice facilities before you trek about the mountain.

“Excellent Hikes and Trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Trail starts just a few minutes by car from Boone Tavern in Berea. Several options so you can decide the distance you want to cover, but can do the whole loop as well. Some great views at the the various lookouts. Worth a picnic
