If you happen to travel to Louisville and have a day to spare, taking a short drive down I-65 (about 20 minutes) and see all that Bernheim Forest has to offer. There is an educational visitors center where you can get information about the different areas to hike or take a relaxing stroll, see educational exhibits about the interesting things in the forest, and details about the wide variety of programs offered throughout the year. There is a small cafe and gift shop at the visitors center also.
When I lived in Louisville I found it was worth paying the annual membership which offered free entry at the gate (normally $5), a great magazine, as well as discounts on special programs.
This beautiful sanctuary of nature offers many levels and lengths of hiking trails, from easy to difficult. There are tremendous photo opportunities throughout the seasons for both flora and fauna alike. If you enjoy art, be sure to check out the outdoor sculpture and other art throughout the property. It is a wonderful place to meditate and commune with nature. It's one of my favorite places in Kentucky.
