Short History of Bullskin Trace:Ohio's First Super Highway....


Bullskin Trace, borne of the trace of buffalo and other large animals tracking through Ohio to the salt licks in Kentucky, was one of the first super-highways in the United States. The Trace starts at the mouth of Bullskin Creek and the Ohio River in Clermont County (Ohio), and served as a roadway from the Ohio River to the Great Lakes for native americans, early settlers and escaping slaves.  The history along the Ohio River in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and beyond is so intriguing.....If only the hills and trails could talk!

We've been saying it and living it. Now there is proof. Cincinnati has been named the #1 Recreation city in the US. From kayaking the Ohio River, Little Miami or Licking, to mountain biking at East Fork to the multitude of parks in Cincinnati, New Richmond and beyond, the availability of outdoor activities/resources is huge.....Let's keep it rolling!
