Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park and the Friends of Blennerhassett, its volunteer group, are pleased that you will visit our park. The Island is open May 1 through October of each year. While visiting our park you should allow at least three hours for a complete tour. This includes the boat trip to and from the island. Blennerhassett Museum should be the first stop of your tour. It is the perfect orientation for all that you will see throughout the day. Your museum visit begins with viewing the video that briefly explains the lives of Harman and Margaret Blennerhassett. You will then be free to tour the three floors of intriguing archaeological and historical exhibits. Please visit our schedule page for information the about sternwheeler ride to Blennerhassett Island, the mansion, and other island activities. While on the island, visitors can enjoy picnicking, horse-drawn wagon rides, shopping at the Friends of Blennerhassett Gift Shop, the refreshment stand, bike rentals, nature walks, and, of course, touring the beautiful Blennerhassett Mansion. The island ticket booth sells tickets for the mansion and wagon ride tours. It also serves as our first aid station. Blennerhassett's tranquility enthralls many of our visitors as they walk the wagon trail-road encircling the upper end of the island. Rich plant life, huge trees, and varied wildlife are a rare treat.

Beautiful island, just wish they’d let you see more of it. Trail was very easy. Recommend.

The island is covered in walnut trees. If you plan on hiking the super easy trail during early autumn, heads up! I saw people get hit in the head by falling walnuts and it looked painful. Surprisingly not the most scenic hike since you’re only allowed to hike less than half of the island. The island is owned by Dow Chemical and is leased to WVSP system.

The trail isn't actually in Belpre OH, it is on Blennerhasset Island in the middle of the Ohio River, just offshore of Belpre OH and Parkersburg WV. You reach it via personal watercraft or ferry from Parkersburg WV.

Good trail though, not too difficult even for someone with breathing issues like me.
