East Pinnacle at sunrise is amazing... West Pinnacle at sunset also amazing. Berea College gives students a day off to hike in October. If you know how to navigate it, you could make a loop of it, but I usually go to one Pinnacle or the other on any particular day. Gail Anderson 8 months ago N/A: 61 Completed 19 Reviews We parked in an unmarked lot that said something about Indian Fort. Once on the trail, what fun! We visited all the sites - West Pinnacle, East Pinnacle, Buzzard Roost, Eagle's Nest (my favorite). I wouldn't call this trail a loop, but we managed to find our way back to the car. Most turns were well marked. Some steep climbs, but not so much that you wanted to stop. The views were definitely worth the trip! Robert Kemper (995) 9 months ago N/A: 31 Completed 8 Reviews One of my favorite trails in Central KY. Steep climb at beginning and levels off to some nice running trails. Great views!

Top was steep but seemed pretty sweet especially since there are only two "major"elevation gains. I can't wait for round two on a sunny day. Highly recommend this hike. Katherine Oliva (46) 11 months ago N/A: 1 Completed 1 Reviews My friends and I like this one a lot. There's a lot of beautiful foliage and the trails very in difficulty - easy to hard - which is good because my group has varying abilities. We've been a few times and enjoyed it every time. Sven Maffett (57) over 1 year ago N/A: 2 Completed 2 Reviews Great run,lots of trails in berea forest or "the pinnacles" as its locally known.

There are several different destinations/overlooks along the trail, each with their own appeal. The West Pinnacle is probably the more challenging hike, the best views (in my opinion) are on the East Pinnacle, Eagle's Nest and Buzzard's Roost are both great places to spend a few hours relaxing. The trail offers a lot of options, you can hike it all at once or divide it up into pieces and enjoy it a little bit at a time.
