THAT’S MY WORLD,WATERY WEDNESDAY,NATIONAL ROAD,CLIFTON MILL,CLIFTON GORGE,VIRTUAL HIKE
The National Road, in many places known as Route 40, was built between 1811 and 1834 to reach the western settlements. So let’s go Honkin’ Down the Highway with the Beach Boys as we visit Clifton Mill and Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve.
Taking the National Road RD. 40 West out of Columbus,Ohio to Springfield then Rt. #72 (Simon Kenton Trace) South to Clifton,Ohio.
First stop is Clifton Mill because I’m hungry. (imagine that)
Good thing I don’t need gas..The station is closed. I’ll just head over to the Mill.
Now for layered corned beef or pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Russian or Thousand Island dressing, grilled between slices of rye bread with chips and pickle. The Reuben Special about $12.00 including tip.
A quick peek at the “Historical Section”
Flour Sacks everywhere
Upcoming events at the Mill; Their famous Christmas Lights display.. The young men in the next photo are putting lights on the cliff opposite the Mill.
Moving on down the road to: ( My first visit here but it won’t be my last )
This is the land of Simon Kenton,Chief Logan,George Rogers Clark,Simon Girty and Tecumseh to name a few. Sit back and enjoy your armchair photo hike.
Can you see the three sections of rock?
CLICK to learn about Rosalie and Wiley the Hermit. Is the Stagecoach trail really HAUNTED?
I think I’ll take a look at the bridge and then turn back
I’m back at the Mill now. It’s time to get some “coffee to go” and head back to Lancaster. Appreciate you stopping by.
A THAT’S MY WORLD & WATERY WEDNESDAY POST
Hi Joe. Now that looks like a great place to hike around in. I have seen pictures in magazines of the mill lite up for Christmas and thought it was so beautiful. Thanks for the tour!
Great photography Joe. You are getting better all the time! I love the mill shot and the two bridge pics. Great compositions! I also love the nature shot of the creek curving (two above the covered bridge). Gorgeous!

Clifton Mill and Gorge look like a fabulous place to visit. I love gorges... You captured some great pictures... That lunch sounds delicious also.
Thanks for sharing... I cannot believe how many leaves are all gone from your trees. We have alot 'down'--but there's still alot on the trees around here so far.
What a fantastic place! So beautiful! I would love to visit there! And your photos are indeed getting better and better every week! Thanks for sharing the beauty and the fun! Have a great week!
You certainly go to many great places, Joe! I really like that shot of the bridge!
What a beauty of a place to spend a day! Being outside in the fresh air is the best! And, breakfast in the woods...more of the best! I hope you get in a few more of these days before the snow falls out of the sky!
My hiking days are over, but now I feel as if I've seen Clifton Gorge. I see one of your tags is "virtual hike" and that's exactly what it is. I loved every bit of it.
