The 63,000 acre state forest, one of the most picturesque in the state, is home to over 60 miles of bridle trails. These primitive, single-track trails with natural surfaces wind through the unglaciated hills and erosion-carved valleys north of the Ohio River. Mostly hardwood forests with many long or steep climbs and many stream crossings. The horseman’s camp is a long grassy area adjacent to a park road. High lines, tie rails, restrooms, stock water and manure bins are available. Because of the popularity of this forest, check on state websites to see if you need a reservation for camping, particularly on weekends and holidays.
