Lunken offers a great family outing - fun playground for little ones, picnic options, a restaurant, a historic building, a walking/biking trail, and my favorite - the up-close watching small aircraft landing and taking off.

Excellent parking for a 5 mile loop that can extend with spurs up to 8 miles . Scenery is fantastic and diverse including airplanes , wetlands, rivers and wildlife . Early mornings are absolutely beautiful.

A 5-mile loop (includes the Ohio River Trail) that's great for an afternoon's walk, bike ride or jog. Along the western portions of the trail you parallel the Ohio River. A visit to this old municipal airport's art deco main building is a must. See...More
