This trail was a nice walk through the woods nothing too strenuous and beautiful views at the overlook about halfway point. Good for beginners and medium seasoned hikers.

Took this trail this morning. Half way you will come to an overlook of the 14 mile creek that runs off the Ohio River. Nice trail.

Not a bad little trail, though not the most interesting scenery. Still, it's enjoyable and I will go on it again.

I consider it to be a little harder than trail #2.
