You can access the Scenic River Trail off Rt.7 about 5 miles north of Newport, OH or you can park at Leith Run Campground and hit the trail from the parking lot. The trail will take you to County Rd. 9 about 3.5 miles north. Now, you can use the Scenic River Loop trail which is off the Scenic River Trail. The loop trail is 7.2 miles long and reconnects to Scenic River Loop on both ends allowing you to make a 10 - 11 mile loop. The loop trail was just reopened during over the winter and into spring 2010. It's just plain awesome !
