Wayne National Forest

Search Nelsonville Ohio

The Wayne National Forest is located in the hilly region of southeast Ohio with towns few and far between. This region is known as Ohio's Hill Country and has the state's highest hills, steepest ravines and most beautiful rivers and streams.

The forest's three units, Athens, Ironton and Marietta, are distinct geological areas. Campers and hikers enjoy the sight of rare ferns along the edges of waterfalls and unusual mountain laurels on high ground towering above gorges. The serious hiker finds challenging terrain and virtual solitude in the forest.

The North Country Trail and the statewide Buckeye Trail pass through the forest and intersect with several of Wayne's finest hiking trails. In addition, the Covered Bridge Scenic Byway in the forest leads hikers and others to historic covered bridges, tobacco barns and a glimpse of rural Americana.
