Two thousand years ago, American Indians of the Hopewell culture gathered in the Scioto River and Paint Creek valleys to build enormous geometric earthworks. For the next half millennia, the Hopewell culture flourished in the area creating spectacular earthen architecture and finely crafted objects. The Hopeton Earthworks complex includes a 20-acre circle, a 20-acre square, at least two small circles and parallel walls.

A trail that has a nice path that's easy on the feet the first quarter-mile. It's mulched and soft to walk on. Then, the path transitions to open field as you make your way to the overlook point. At just over a half-mile one way, it is an easy walk out and back.
