Close to the Leith Run Recreation Area this 7 mile trail explores several habitats.

The 7-mile Ohio View Trail lies about 3 miles north of Leith Run Recreation Area. Similar to the Scenic River Trail, this trail does not make a loop, but begins in the wide Ohio River bottomland and climbs the slopes of the valley to an overlook high above the river. In addition to spectacular views of the Ohio River valley, the trail winds through shady coves of big trees, a wildlife pond, the side hollows of Collins Run, across brooks, and weaves through interesting rock outcroppings.

Directions: From Newport and New Matamoras, OH, Trailhead parking is available along Route 7 between the two small towns.
