A Travel Tour of the Adena Hopewell Mounds in Highland, Ross, Highland Adams and Scioto Counties of Ohio.

A Travel Tour of the Adena Hopewell Mounds in Highland, Ross, Highland  Adams and Scioto Counties of Ohio.

    This tour guide map was done by the Ohio Tourism Board.  Starting in Chillicothe, the tour begins at Mound City and then the Adena Mound, but wait, there's no mound there, it was long ago completely leveled by the the Ohio Historical Society, so skip that one.  From there, lets head west to the Hopewell Mound Group, which may be the same as what I marked as the North Fork Works. Heading down 41 and a little back tacking you can see the Seip mound and down 41 to Fort Hill and the Serpent Mound. From the Serpent Mound its a pretty long drive down to the Tremper Mound, but wait, the mound has been excavated and is on private property. You can see a slight rise on a hill about a 100 yards away, that's it!  At Portsmouth only one horseshoe shaped work is left of almost 20 miles of earthwork, still pretty cool see.
   9 sites, with two where there is little or nothing to see.  If you had "Nephilim Chronicles: A Travel Guide to the Ancient Ruins," You would add 10 sites to see to this trip. Some of the mounds are the largest in Ohio. 


This burial mound is located north of Chillicothe; it is the second largest burial mound in Ohio.  Sorry, but its not part of Ohio's official tour. This is worth an extra 10 miles.

See that slight rise on that hill? That's the Tremper mound, not much to see and this is as close as you get. In the time it took to drive this far south, there were at least 5 much bigger sites you could have visited.
In the The Nephilim Chronicles: A Travel Guide to the Ancient Ruins in the Ohio Valley," every site has been photographed with historical details added, giving you more information in deciding and planning your trip.
