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.
