Northwest of Ironton and north of Hanging Rock in the Wayne National Forest, the Hanging Rock ORV Trail System has 26 miles of trails over 5,000 acres open to ATV riding. The area contains a network of nine very challenging trails through forested hills. Loops of varying length can be formed in this trail network. The trails wind through an old strip mine area from the 1960s. The Hanging Rock OHV Trail System is shared with mountain bikers and dirt bike riders, so keep an eye out and slow down when passing. These trails can be crowded on the weekends.

To reach the trailhead from Ironton, head west on US52 to Hanging Rock. Turn right heading north on SR650 for 0.75 miles. Turn left heading west on FS105. Stay on Forest Road 105 for approximately 1.5 miles for beginning of OHV trail and main trailhead parking.

Note: In the Wayne National Forest, all ATV’s must display an Ohio APV tag and a Wayne National Forest ATV permit. ATV riding on the forest service roads is prohibited and aggressively enforced. All ATV riders must use a helmet and goggles. The trails are closed from mid-December through mid-April. The routes are designed only for ATV’s under 50 inches wide, so do not attempt to ride side-by-side UTV’s on these trails. Night riding is permitted on the Hanging Rock OHV Trail System providing that the ATV has working lights.

Overall, Hanging Rock OHV Trail System is the 2nd most popular ATV riding trail of all 13 ATV trails in Ohio. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Hanging Rock OHV Trail System including Monday Creek ATV Trail System, Pine Creek OHV Trail System and Superior OHV Trail System.
