If you want a nice place to relax around the water falls and brooks, this is the place. Not to mention the gorgeous views of the river and Kentucky from high above.

There are paved roads that you can ride bikes on. The roads are hilly and curvy, so be prepared. You will be sharing the road with vehicles, so be alert. There are no bike only trails.

There is no fishing at this park. The Ohio River is near and there are other lakes in the area, but are outside of the park.
