Hiking is Great at Jefferson Memorial Forest

This past weekend I hiked in Jefferson Memorial Forest, which is located in southern Jefferson County in Louisville, Kentucky.  I had never been there before, much less hiked there so I took the opportunity on a decent day in November for a hike.  I ended up hiking the Purple Heart Trail, which is a 2 mile loop trail which is of moderate difficulty.  There are definitely some literal ups and downs to this trail, but it isn’t too strenuous.

This past week the fall colors were mostly gone and understandably parts of the trails were overcome with leaves, but the trails and the grounds were otherwise clean and a great place to getaway.

Above is the Tom Wallace Lake.  I would like to go back next year and explore more of the many trails at Jefferson Memorial Forest.  Kentucky is a beautiful state and you can see some of its beauty at Jefferson Memorial Forest.

Do you like hiking or have you ever been to Jefferson Memorial Forest?

Let me know.
