Popular with Cincinnati and northern Kentucky motorcyclists. Connects a loop ride up and down the river using US-52, KY 8 or KY 9/10 (the 'Double A' highway). The ferry makes a good photo op platform, too.

A quick ride east on KY 8 will take you to Dover, KY and the Dover Covered Bridge. This bridge (rebuilt) is still in use and is worth the ride. Ignore the spray painted graffiti.
