    Question Any good backpacking/hang sites close to Cincinnati?

    My little brothers and I discovered Hammock camping last year and the forum this year. As hikers we have been to RRG quite a few times and love it, but we are trying to find some cool hanging destinations that are a little closer to the Cincy/NKY area. Any good ones that you guys have discovered?

    Hoosier national forest between Nashville and bloomington is a popular one. I have met a couple cincinati-ins there.

    I'm leaving for work in a few minutes, but will post more details when I get home:
    Eastfork lake out past Amelia has a few decent places with nice walking.

    North to Caesar creek (71 N to exit 45, go left) is similar.

    If willing to do about a 3 hr drive, Red River Gorge in KY is GREAT!

    Shawnee state park near Portsmouth has a few nice trails, minimal views but good hanging sites & well maintained trails.

    There are more but my "You got to leave now" alarm is sounding, so I'll post more later.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
