Brush Creek State Forest is set among the picturesque rolling hills of southern Ohio and comprises well over 12,000 acres of productive hardwood forest land. The vast majority of these acres are made up of steep hillsides, deep hollows, and narrow ridge tops. Combined with the climate in the region, the land is ideally suited to the growth of deciduous hardwood forests.
Brush Creek S.F. was established in 1928 with the acquisition of 285 acres of land from Shawnee State Forest. It covers parts of Adams County, Pike County and Scioto County and provides 3 miles of hiking trails and 12 miles of equestrian trails.
