Berheim Forest afternoon hike

Join us on the 16th as we head to Bernheim Forest for an afternoon hike.  We'll start out hitting some of the loop trails on the eastern edge of the park and then head down to the visitor center to finish up on some of the trails there.

Trail Stats

Meeting time: 12:30 PM in Bowling Green  (travel time to the forest is about 1:30 each way)

Distance: 6 miles ?

Estimated Time: 4 hours

Difficulty: moderate (the trails are hilly but since we will do multiple short loops, you can cut the hiking short and check out the visitor center if you have had enough)

Well behaved dogs are welcome - Bernheim has a strict leash law.

Those wanting to carpool can meetup at the Fairview Plaza at 12:30PM.  We should get to the park at 2:00 or so (Bernheim Forest is in Eastern Time Zone but we will stick with Central Time).  If you would like to meet us at the park (we will go to the visitor center to use the facilities before hitting the trail), please let me know when you RSVP so we know to look for you at the visitor center.
