The Ohio River is a vast water resource that stretches 981 miles from Pittsburgh, PA to Cairo, IL., however the first segment of the Trail, which this proposal addresses, is a 274 river mile reach starting at Portsmouth, Ohio (Ohio River mile 356) and ending at West Point, Kentucky (Ohio River mile 630). The Ohio River is a multi-use resource supporting municipal and industrial needs, water borne commerce and recreation. The presentation will describe the ongoing work to dedicate the Ohio River Recreation Trail as National Water Trail authorized by the National Park Service.
