Getting There

One of three short trails in Shawnee Lookout, another well-maintained and easily accessible Hamilton County Park. Admission is $3 per day. Easy lollipop style trail taking you along the Ohio River. This trail features a couple nice views and some excellent geocaching opportunities. Like most Hamilton County Parks, the trails are well maintained with several benches along the way if you need a little rest.

Admission to park is $3 or you can get an annual membership to all Hamilton County Parks for $10.

Take the 275 loop into Indiana and get off on US-50, heading towards Cincinnati. Look for signs to Shawnee Lookout, turning onto Lawrenceburg Road and then making a right towards Dugan Gap.

It was a perfect trail for this time of year having a bit of a warm spell. The trail was well maintained easily to follow. some terrian changes. My elderly mother-in-law had a couple issues but nothing too bad

Nice little trail. Some good views I didn’t realize were here. A few good elevation changes to make it interesting. Beautiful fall colors.
