Maumee State Forest

Other Names

Oak Openings

Last Known StatusOpen

This state park has about eight miles of designated ATV trails that form a long and twisty loop. The terrain is mostly flat with slight elevation changes, making it a good choice to bring a novice rider.

The staging area provides direct access to the eastern section but you will need to cross the road to access the western trails. The staging area is paved and amenities include restrooms, a picnic table, trash receptacles and informational kiosk.

As of this writing there is no fee charged to park or ride but all machines must have a current Ohio APV Tag. The staging area and trails are only open during daylight hours but camping facilities are just a couple miles away.

The trails are open year-round to motorized use. During the winter months snowmobiles are permitted if there is enough snow coverage.
