The Monday Creek area of the Wayne National Forest provides some excellent opportunities for riding off-road vehicles (ORVs). A trail system north of Nelsonville provides approximately 70 miles of trails for off-road vehicle, hiking, and mountain bike use. Two other trail systems for off-road vehicles are provided on the Wayne NF north of Ironton, Ohio.
Camping is also allowed at trailheads however the primary purpose of the trailheads is for parking. Be considerate of others and do not block access to roads, trails, or trailheads.
Remember, if you camp at the trailheads, you can build a campfire as long as you have a 10 foot clearance around it and put a ring around it with rocks. Fires must be extinguished before leaving camp. No bon fires are allowed. No standing or green trees may be cut. Check the bulletin boards to ensure no fire bans are in effect.

Trails are open for use from April 15th through December 15th each year. Seasonal trail closures are in place to prevent resource damage and limit maintenance costs.
