Maumee State Forest

Thursday, October 16, 2014
Alt Names Oak Openings
Last Known Status Open
DESCRIPTION

About seven miles of ATV trails can be found at this state park. The staging area provides direct access to the eastern section but you will need to cross the road to access the western trails.

The forest is open year-round and mainly consists of wide and flat trails with slight elevation changes, making it a good place to take a beginner. Camping is not permitted but Hidden Lake Campground is just a couple miles away. Snowmobiles are permitted during the winter months.
