5 Cool Spots for ATV Off-Roading in Ohio

If there's one thing Ohio is seemingly designed for, it's off-roading. With timber lands, densely forested areas, and large expanses of land, you’ll find everything you’re looking for in an ATV adventure. Here are five excellent spots to traverse off-roading trails in Ohio! 

1. Pike State Forest

The acquisition of land for Pike State Forest began in 1924 with the objective of returning abused hill farms and damaged timber lands back to being productive forests. Now with over 12,084 acres of land, Pike State Forest has become an ATV off-roader's dream.

2. R Adventure Park

R Adventure Park in Hocking Hills, is the nation's first and only ATV rental and training facility focused on family-oriented riding. So if you've been holding off on taking the family off-roading, then wait no more, because R Adventure Park is exactly what you're looking for!

3. Renegade Ridge ATV Park, Bloomingdale, OH

Renegade Ridge was founded only in 2010, but it has quickly become one of the premier ATV parks in Eastern Ohio. They're home to over 25 miles of well-kept and well-marked trails, so whether you're a beginner or a veteran, these trails are sure to be a blast. 

4. Bear Creek Ranch KOA, East Sparta, OH

Bear Creek Ranch KOA is home to dozens of fun outdoor activities when you're looking for an escape from the everyday, but none more fun than the miles and miles of trails available for ATV off-roading. With beautiful scenery, and a helpful, friendly staff, Bear Creek is a must-see. 

5. Wayne National Forest

Situated in the hills of southeastern Ohio, Wayne National Forest sprawls across a quarter million acres. More than 300 miles of trails are available for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and ATV riding. Nothing quite compares to taking in the rustic beauty of the Applachian foothills on the back of an ATV. 

*Note: Age restrictions, special licenses, and other requirements for off highway vehicles vary from state to state. Before heading out on your OHV, please consult your local regulations.
