Wayne National Forest Current and Recent Projects
Elkins Creek Horse Camp & Tack Shop has requested an authorization to use an existing undesignated route (~0.02 acres) as a trail connector from their camp to the Kimble Loop Horse Trail. If authorized, only horse and foot traffic would be permitted.
This project is intended to close an existing abandoned mine tunnel opening and repair areas of subsidence that pose a risk to the public on the Athens Ranger District.
A Forest-wide effort to address legacy effects associated with sub-surface mining and oil and gas drilling, this project would authorize mine safety closures, stream capture re-routes, and orphan well plugging in cooperation with partners.
The WNF proposes to re-route a portion of the main loop of horse trail around the Lake Vesuvius Rec Area. The re-route is proposed to improve safety for horses and riders by moving the horse trail away from the archery trail.
The Wayne National Forest is initiating Plan Revision. This process begins with assessment, the first stage of the plan revision process. The assessment will compile information about ecological, social, and economic conditions in the planning area.
This proposal would allow the construction of a 15 ft by 850 ft access road through Wayne National Forest lands to access private property
