This page includes, in links listed below, information on projects which implement the Forest Plan. On some, public input is being sought, on others decision notices or environmental assessments on forest projects are posted. 

Wayne National Forest Current and Recent Projects

Under Analysis

  • Haydenville Tunnel Safety Closure Project

    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.

  • The Orphan Wells & Abandoned Mines Project

    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.

Analysis Completed

  • Elkins Creek Horse Camp & Tack Shop, L.L.C. Special Use Authorization Request

    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.


  • Forest Plan Revision - Wayne National Forest

    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.

  • Special Use Permit - Access Road

    This proposal would allow the construction of a 15 ft by 850 ft access road through Wayne National Forest lands to access private property
