Trail goes flucuates from 600 to 900 feet elevation. Over 20 stream crossings most across Whiskey Run and Storms Run. You'll walk through pure stands of 26"+white oaks and many acrs of mixed oaks. No established campsites at the half way point. This trail is within the boundaries of the Wayne National Forest Ironton District and is well marked. There are several access points, main one at Lake Vesuvius Recreation area. Very nice, especially in spring.

Directions to Hike
From Jackson, Ohio take St. Rt. 93 South for 18+ miles to Pedro, Ohio (wide spot in the road). Look for the Wayne National Forest Lake Vesuvius Recreation Area sign. You'll pass the Wayne National Forest Visitor's Center just before the road that leads to Lake V.
