Hanging Rock ORV Trails

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Hanging Rock Trail System, Wayne National Forest, Ironton Ranger District

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Wayne National Forest has about 26 miles of challenging loops that consist of steep uphill and down hill descents, water crossings, jumps, a nice mix of hard pack and loose dirt plus a few berms.

Camping is prohibited at the main staging area but is permitted throughout the forest. There are several primitive campsites with trail access that can be found on the gravel portion of FS Road 105 and on several spur roads.

A permit is required to ride here which must be obtained prior to arrival since they are not available on site. Permits can be obtained by visiting any of the three Wayne National Forest district offices, online or from one of the local vendors.

This is a very popular place during weekends and is known for its numerous small fishing ponds. The trails have an annual seasonal closure from mid December through mid April.
