An announcement from the Berea College Forest:

In response to large gatherings that have been occurring at popular hiking and outdoor activity sites, Governor Beshear has urged the closure of all such venues to the public. The Red River Gorge is said to be closing as are most of our state parks and many outdoor city areas, as well. The Administrative Committee has reluctantly made the decision to close temporarily the Indian Fort area and the College Forest more generally to hiking and other outdoor recreational activities. Effective this evening at dusk, parking areas will be barricaded.

From the FOC team, stay safe and we’ll look forward to hiking with you again!

Anglin Falls is a short drive from Berea College’s campus and offers a mile-long trail leading to a waterfall in the John B. Stephenson Memorial Forest.

Look for a small sign that says Anglin Falls at the address 842 Anglin Falls Rd.
