Hiking The Bluegrass Trail

The 6th most popular hiking trail in Ohio.

In the Wayne National Forest, the 10 mile Bluegass Trail follows many ridges in a loop around Dean Hollow through oak-hickory forest and scattered pine plantations. With sections along the Ohio River, this National Forest is situated on the Allegheny Plateau in southeastern Ohio. WNF encompassed 178,000 acres in four parcels along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. While the forest offers a variety of adventures including hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing, visitors should be aware that the exterior boundaries of the forest enclose some private lands. From Ironton, follow SR 93 north to CR 4. Proceed east through Cannon Creek to CR 16. Head east to FS 198. Travel south to the parking lot at the Kimble Lookout Tower.

Overall, Bluegrass Trail is the 6th most popular hiking trail of all 26 hikes in Ohio.
