About the Forest

About the Wayne National Forest

Discover the wonder and beauty of the Wayne National Forest. Tucked away in the Appalachian foothills, you'll experience the natural beauty of wildflowers, rock formations, trees, and abundant wildlife.

Explore the Forest's hills, fishing lakes, rivers, and trails. Every season holds its own special beauty: the white dogwoods and pink redbuds of spring; summer's emerald hills reflected in quiet lakes; the colorful pallete of autumn; and the shimmering beauty of a new snowfall. Campgrounds sheltered under towering trees and thousands of acres open to hunting and nature study await your visit.
