The Cliff Dweller Trail is a challenging loop, following part of the Adventure Trail along Potato Run. Originally built as a hiking trail, the trail is now maintained by the local MTB community.
The trail begins at the Pioneer Shelter and crosses Potato Run Creek, which is usually dry. Follow along Potato Run and climb up, following along the steep-sided bank overlooking Potato Run Creek. Some "hike-a-bike" may be required through the steeper, rockier climbs.
Cliff Dweller Trail forks off to the left after a rugged climb, but local riders typically tie Cliff Dweller into a ride up to the Ohio River Overlook Shelter (AKA Lloyd's Cabin), on The Adventure Hiking Trail Loop
for a great view of the Ohio River, before returning to the trail intersection.
The descent from the intersection crosses a number of rocky ravines before dropping down through the cedars. Use caution on the descent, as the trail drops off sharply over a rocky outcropping, followed by a hard left turn. The trail then follows along a rocky creek bed, climbing and descending another rocky outcropping before returning to the Potato Run crossing. Follow the trail up the hill, back to Pioneer Cabin.
