The lion’s share of this route follows the Ohio River Scenic Byway, a series of roads that traces the waterway for nearly 1,000 miles from Pennsylvania to Cairo, Illinois. The northern section of this loop contains hills laced with quiet roads that wind through woods and pastureland. While paralleling the Ohio River to the west, you’ll pass two creeks that widen into small lakes. A succession of rolling hills takes you down to the Ohio River floodplain on Unionville Road and back to Brookport. Start: Downtown Brookport at the corner of 2nd Street and Ohio Street.
