There are two different trail access points to Indian Fort Mountain. One is obviously Indian Fort Theater, the other is the West Pinnacle trailhead located at the intersection of Big Hill Road and Gabbardtown Road (in the corner of the parking lot of the civic center or whatever that building is, there's a paved trail for bikers, just walk up it until you cross the wooden bridge and then look to your left). The GPS coordinates for Indian Ft Theater are 37.554262,-84.240825, if you're an out of towner you might have trouble finding Indian Ft Theater via lack of visual landmarks.

As for the trail, the Pinnacles remain some of the best hiking in Kentucky for the views. There's no camping, but this place is certainly my favorite for day hiking. Be careful up there, people have died, the falls are lethal.

Even though it's January it's absolutely breath taking when you reach the top. My favorite part was being able to take my dog for the first time hiking and how beautiful east pinnacle is.
