Any visit to Berea Ky should include a stop here. The Pinnacles of Berea is a wonderful hiking spot. Even if you dont hike the walk is well worth a visit. The old Indian Fort Theater area was the home of the retired outdoor drama...More

I believe it's to the right when you get to the top where the sign is, it isn't long at all if I'm remembering correctly. Try the trails near Asbury university, they're pretty good. The All Trails app is nifty to have also... More
