Garden of the Gods: We will cross the Ohio River on a free ferry and visit Cave-In-Rock State Park. Cave-in-Rock was a refuge for frontier outlaws and river pirates. The trail goes down a lot of steps and follows a short distance along the Ohio River River bank to the mouth of the cave. You can go into the cave for about 50 yards to a large room with a hole to the roof which lets in sunlight. There are bathrooms at the park.

Next we drive to Rim Rock Recreational Trail a 1.4 mile moderately difficult loop trail on natural turf. It gos around the rim of a rock escarpment and down through a crevice in the rock cliff to the valley floor where it  meanders through large rock formations. It loops back up through the woods to the trail head. We will eat lunch at a picnic table near the trail head. There is a porta potty near the picnic tables.

Next we drive to Garden of the Gods and hike the 1/4 mile moderately difficult Observation loop Trail on a flagstone surface. The trail passed through unique sandstone rock formations with panoramic views. You can climb out on many of the rock formations; There are bathrooms in the parking lot; meet 7:00 AM CDT at Krogers Dover Crossing parking lot.. ≈111 miles to Garden of The Gods.
