Parking is extremely limited.

Runner Notes

Not a good running trail. Very narrow and tilted, with some steeply built steps at various points.

Description

This trail has a mostly steady incline with a few spots that are steeper. The terrain is mostly dirt with some various rocks and roots. There is a lot of good tree cover that makes the trail comfortable for running, even on sunny days. The top of the trail is Raven Rock, which looks out over the Ohio River and Kentucky. If you go beneath Raven Rock there are hundreds of carvings and signatures, some dating back to the 1800s.

Flora & Fauna

Multiple wildflowers can be seen, especially honeysuckle. Deer and squirrel are the most likely critters to be found in this trail.
