Get Lost In These 11 Stunning State Forests In Ohio
Sometimes, you just need to be alone with nature.
One of the best ways to embrace all that nature has to offer in the Buckeye State is by taking a long walk (or a weekend-long camping trip) into one of our breathtaking state forests. Fall time is the best time to do so, as our forests feature stunning autumn foilage. Here are 11 of our favorite state forests in Ohio—and we think you should explore the one nearest you before winter comes.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
