A brief introduction to Wayne National Forest

The Wayne National Forest is within a few hours drive of several metropolitan areas such as Columbus, Akron, Cleveland, Dayton, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Pittsburgh. Yet it retains an air of nostalgia, with covered bridges, rockshelters, springs and rugged hills covered with hardwood and pine, visitors to the Wayne are welcome to camp, hike, hunt, and fish. There are over 300 miles of trails on the forest for hiking, off-highway vehicle (OHV) riding, mountain biking, or horseback riding.
