Terribly marked trails. Someone has pulled up the majority of the trail markers. There are no blazes. it had rained most the day before making the trails thick with mud. Never made it to the river. Very disappointing. Could hear the people camping at all times, so no solitude.

Beautiful trail! We followed the OCT trail markers, but it seemed longer than 4 miles. We didn't have a tracker on, so could be wrong, but experience tells us it was longer, so be prepared for a long hike! Took us about 4 hours... it was worth it though. Lots of wildlife and views. Also would rate this as hard, not moderate, just because of the hills.

This is a YMCA park. It is closed on Monday and Tuesday. There is also a fee to enter the park. The park was closed the day we wanted to hike. Will rate later.

One of our more favorite trails in Kentucky. Nice scenery of water coming down the hill from Morgan's Cave, the high vie of the Ohio River Bend and then Otter Creek with fly fishermen and wildlife. Its about a 10 mile loop though, the 7.5 doesn't cover the linking of the OTC in the valley.

Loved it! The section I covered from just below the highway down along the West Bank of the creek to the Ohio River and then back up a ridge and down a horse trail to the creek again was amazing! It rained most of the trek. Was very private!!
Multiple trails which are color coded and numbered. Definitely will return there.
