Leith Run Recreation Area

This multi-purpose development on the banks of the Ohio River is a popular attraction on the Wayne National Forest. This fully accessible facility offers a variety of recreation activities. For a downloadable brochure of the recreation area (prints on 8.5 x 14 inch paper) click here.

Many improvements were made in 2013 to the recreation area. In 2014 you'll see several no-mow zones and plantings of native shrubs to increase bird habitat and make the landscape more sustainable.
