American Discovery Trail

American Discovery Trail is a system of over 6,800 miles of trails stretching across the country from Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware to Point Reyes National Seashore in California.  The system of trails connects 5 national scenic trails, 12 national historic trails, 34 national recreational trails, as well as many local and regional trails passing through many cities, national parks, and national forests along the way.

The trail enters Cincinnati from Fairfax into Eden Park and into Mt. Adams.  From Mt. Adams the trail leads into Bicentennial Commons and through Yeatman’s Cove (where the marker shown above can be found).  The trail continues on across the Roebling Suspension Bridge into Covington through Mainstrasse, through Devoe Park and crossing the Ohio River once again on the Anderson Ferry.  The trail exits Cincinnati passing the tomb of William Henry Harrison and onto Indiana.
