The Bullskin Trail
The Bullskin Trail is also known by many other names, including: Bullskin Trace, Xenia Trail, or Xenia Trace.
The location of the south end of the trail was at the present intersection of Ohio 133 and US 52.
The north end was approximately 3 miles north of Xenia.
When going by Old Town it took a new name.
The trail had been
created by the migration of buffalo and other animals to the salt licks.
The trail was used
by Daniel Boone to escape from the Shawnee Indians.
Crawford, former Historian of Clermont County, notes that the trail was
designed as one of Ohio's first state roads in February 1807.
