Nice short hike. Very steep rock trail to river but creek was awesome with nice waterfalls.

A nice short hike. The trail is very steep as it heads down to the river, but without that section is a very easy trail that almost anyone could hike. Nice views and area for the kids to climb around on the rocks. There's a small campground for car camping.

Nice short hike, small section challenging with steep clime and a real 6to8 food vertical rock climb. great views. Ohio river, kentucky farm land, working barge traffic. on river.

The trail is great and the views spectacular. Cannot suggest camping here, recent increase in local illicit activities made the area feel very unsafe as the sun began to set.

I love this place the view of the river and the farms on the Kentucky side are beautiful. The trail to the river requires you to climb down huge rocks which looked scary at first but really wasn't so bad and was a lot of fun.

Love the views over the Ohio River. Have camped here several times. It technically a pick-nick spot but camping is allowed thanks to dispersed camping in national forests. The trail consists of two parts in my mind. One part is the short loop around the top and pick-nick area. The part that really shines is the part of the trail that leads down to the rivers where you get some great little waterfalls and rock features. Definitely worth the time.
