It's a nice place to camp. Very quite and secluded. Right next to the river so that's a perk!
Decent hike, a lot of ups and downs, steep in some places. Completely overgrown and not taken care of. It's like a forgotten gem. Wonderful views of the Ohio River. The trail starts by the boat launch. Saw a very large bird and have no idea what it was. It appeared to have a 5 foot wing span. Was the largest bird I have ever seen my entire life.
