The Maysville Road continues north from Blue Licks through the Eden Shale Hills as a straightened and reconstructed modern highway. The old road is represented in many cut off loops that detach and reattach to the contemporary road. Along Red Bud Road, a cut off section of the old road, a remnant of the ancient Licking River flood plain lies more than 100 feet above the existing river channel. The ancestral Licking River deposited silt and gravel channel deposits here. As the river eroded its channel downward these deposits were left behind as extensive flats that are now farm land.
