Obed Wild & Scenic River at Lily Bluff Overlook
Managed by the National Park Service, this is one of the most delightful overlooks in the region. The Obed Wild and Scenic River looks much the same today as it did when the first white settlers strolled its banks in the late 1700s. The Lily Bluff Overlook is just a short walk through the woods from the parking lot and boasts an excellent boardwalk to the edge of the bluffs overlooking the river. The park also has opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, camping and many hiking trails. We recommend visiting the park headquarters and visitor center in downtown Wartburg. Their friendly staff can help you plan your trip and share their vast knowledge of the surrounding area.
