Join Us for the New Elm Lick Trail Ribbon Cutting

Bernheim friends, member and the general public are invited to join in the celebration of the five-mile trail takes you on a journey across the 500-acre Elm Lick watershed, following upland ridge lines with views of the knobs before dropping into the Elm Lick Valley. The trail then climbs a knob to the ridge line on the north side of Elm Lick Valley, and then drops back in to upper section of the watershed before climbing a steep hillside to finish the loop.

After the ribbon-cutting at the trail head, Bernheim’s executive director, Dr. Wourms will lead a hike of the trail. Those wishing to join him are asked to sign up ahead of time by calling Bernheim’s main number at 502-955-8512. Hikers should bring water and wear long pants and a hat.

In addition to Elm Lick’s grand opening, the third annual Bernheim Trail Marathon and Half Marathon takes place on Saturday as part of the Trail Runner Magazine Trophy Series. Runners still interested must register at www.ultrasignup.com by Wednesday, May 29. The public is welcome to come out and cheer on the runners at the finish line across from the Visitor Center. Both races start at 8:00a.m.

So join us for a hike and what’s sure to be a great celebration.
