An awesome park by Hamilton County Great Parks. Some good vistas of the Ohio River.

Andrew Grachek

Overview

This great route combines three of the great trails at Shawnee Lookout Park. Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to pass near the Ohio River, see an old military fort, and travel through the forested part of the park.
Features: River/Creek — Views
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The trailheads for each individual trail are all well marked and easy to find. The westernmost trail, the Miami Fort Trail, requires some road travel to access.

You'll start out your rolling journey on the Blue Jacket Trail. This trail is roughly lollipop shaped, and you can tour the loop at the end in either direction. From there, you'll head to the Little Turtle Trail. This trail lies closest to the Ohio River, though the thick vegetation will make it difficult to see the water.

The Miami Fort Trail and the Miami Fort Trail Extension have the best view of the Ohio River, so take your time along this section. Keep an eye out on these loops as some Native American artifacts and the old fort structure remains.
