This 9,000 acre state forest, named after a Native-American trail which ran from Chillicothe to Portsmouth, lies within the Scioto River valley. There are 26 miles of multi-use trails which wind through the forested hills and valleys of the forest on primitive, single-track natural-surface treadways. There are some steep or long climbs and many shallow stream crossings. These trails are shared by equestrians, hikers and mountain bikers. There are two trailheads in the northern and southern sections of the forest. Both have dirt/stone surfaces and are large enough for 10 trailers. No amenities. See map for locations.
Trail rating: moderate to challenging
