River Loop to Scenic River Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Think Appalachia—hollows, coal mines, bluegrass music, rural life. Now think Appalachian Ohio. Yep, there is such a thing, and Wayne National Forest lies in the heart of Ohio’s hill country. Hike the River Loop to Scenic River Trail and walk through a microcosm of the natural, human, and resource history that defines this region.
Start from the banks of the Ohio River and ascend to the ridgetop through a mixed mesophytic forest. Walk past gas pumps and through rock gardens before returning to the river. Hike it in a day or make it into an overnighter, since backcountry camping is allowed in the national forest."
