Bernheim Forest is a scenic retreat
One of the best places to enjoy hiking and biking near Louisville is Bernheim Forest, about a 30-minute drive from the city.
There’s a recommended donation of $10 a car for entry, and its trails are open from dawn to dusk.
The arboretum hosts rotating installations. Currently, massive wooden forest giants by the Danish artist Thomas Dambo are perched at different points on a marked trail.
Tip: Bernheim Forest isn’t far from some of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail’s most popular destinations if you’re looking to visit a distillery.
