Notes:
-Take a moment to study your route at the beginning through Newport and Covington.  It is only confusing because of the lack of route signage.
-Instruction #7 & #8 - Graves Rd. is obscure so check your mileage when you turn onto 237 off 8 because it is very easy to miss Graves.  It is a very sharp turn.
-Instruction 15 - Really nice scenic roadside parking to check out the bend in the Ohio.  An option is to continue 8.5 miles further west on 42 to the Markland Dam which has observation facilities and a little picnic area.
