Loop trail with views from the Indian Fort Mountain Lookout and other lookout points as well.    Awesome view from the top of the lookout of the farmland below and on clear days one can see another local college to the north , Eastern Kentucky University, as well as the Big Blue 5/3 building in Lexington, Ky.   This system of trails is managed by Berea College and their Department Of Forestry.  On that website you will find a map.   There are around 8 miles, or so, of trails within the forest and opportunities to do some bouldering and rapelling in the forest as well.  The locals call the area "The Pinnacles".  After the hike get a slice of pizza at "Papaleno's PIzza" and check out the town.  Berea is the "Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky"
