Ohio, Meigs County, Shade River
river mile 210
It’s great to have a scenic view! This one looks out over a wide stretch of the Ohio River, along a long bend, a couple of miles in each direction. It’s a nice place for a momentary stop, or, on a bicycle, for a substantial stop after climbing up a long hill. It’s a scenic view, and that’s what a person can do there: stop, look. It’s a narrow strip of paved parking facing the river, with an attractive parapet. The view would be better if the bushes under the parapet were trimmed so the view was unobstructed. No amenities, and paddlers would have to be extremely ambitious to want to trek up here.
