Louisville’s Jefferson Memorial Forest has three separate recreation areas and more than a dozen trails. One of their recommended hikes starts with the Yost Ridge Trail at the forest Welcome Center, until you get to the Mitchell Hill Lake Trail. The lake trail loops around Mitchell Hill Lake, whereupon you can backtrack the Yost trail to the welcome center again. 3.2 miles round trip.
Amber, Grace, and I had been meaning to go on a hike for some time and today had perfect weather for it. We really enjoyed the trail, especially how the lake sort of pops into view all of sudden.
