Don’t Let These Stunning Views Fool You, The Fire Tower Loop in Bernheim Forest In Kentucky Is Actually An Easy Hike
Most fire tower hikes involve not only a pretty steep (and steady) incline, but also some major mileage to get there. But the Bernheim Forest Fire Tower Loop at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest is only 0.5 miles long and takes under half an hour, making it one of the most unique and accessible hikes in Kentucky!
There are over 35 miles of trails here, so if you’ve got some more time after making it to the tower, consider taking another hike, like the 13.75-mile Millennium Trail or the 1.5-mile Iron Ore Hill Loop. Or just take a walk along the beautiful Lake Nevin.
