Description

The Red Trillium Trail takes you on a gradual 400 foot climb overlooking the Ohio River. Keen eyes can expect to see a variety of wildlife (warblers, flycatchers, newts, snakes, pawpaw trees, and more!). The trail is often narrow and rocky but the various switchbacks make the climb easier than one would expect. The trail is well marked and easy to follow due to the terrain.
