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.

Really amazing views. Pretty steep hike at first but once your there it is so worth it. Great place to stop during a road trip. Trails are pretty long though so you’ll need a decent amount of time

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.
