Very steep at the beginning! A few rough spots to climb over at the top (for kids at least) but our family loved the view from the top!

I bring my dogs here each time I come. The beginning is challenging as it's all uphill. Once you reach the middle of the mountain, to see the overlook take a right, then it is a flat walk until you reach another uphill which leads you to the overlook. It's pretty rough but well worth it.

Local folks call this The Pinnacle and you'll see a lot of locals here on a warm day... and some on cold days as well. 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.

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!

Very steep at the beginning. Levels off during middle section and then ends with a brisk finish. West Pinnacles offers excellent valley views and mountains.

One of my favorite trails in Central KY. Steep climb at beginning and levels off to some nice running trails. Great views!

I imagine that this hike has amazing views however I went on a low ceiling day. 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.

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.
