Shawnee Lookout Professional Review and Guide

"The museum details the unique history of the American Indian tribes who lived in the area. Steep Miami Fort Trail has a multitude of steps and fantastic vistas. Meandering Little Turtle Trail offers several places to rest and enjoy the view of the Ohio River."

"This hike explores extensive Paleo-Indian earthworks located high on a ridge dividing the Great Miami River and Ohio River. Controversy swirls as to the purpose of the earthworks, whether they are military (a fort), ceremonial (a religious site), or practical (an irrigation system for a farm village).

This hike explores the area William Henry Harrison dubbed “Fort Miami” and also travels to a stellar vista where you can see the confluence of the rivers and three states at once—Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana."

"Shawnee Lookout Park features three rewarding—but relatively short—loop hikes. Though each one is individually worthwhile, their close proximity allows you to make a hiker’s triple play.

First visit extensive Paleo-Indian earthworks located atop a ridge dividing the Great Miami River and Ohio River and travel to a stellar vista where you can see the confluence of the rivers and three states at once—Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Next, enjoy more river vistas of both the Great Miami and Ohio Rivers on the last two hikes, adding up to nearly 5 miles of walking pleasure."
