Ohio’s Wayne National Forest imposes new rules
May 09, 2013
The Wayne National Forest in southeastern Ohio now has new prohibitions meant to increase safety and protect natural resources.
Forest Supervisor Anne Carey signed the prohibitions on April 30. They regulate a number of activities, including off-highway vehicle operation, campfires, camping, hunting and boating.
For OHVs, the rules include a requirement for a spark arrester, sound limit of 99 decibels, no passengers allowed unless the vehicle is designed for passengers, no riding on Forest Service roads unless the vehicle is street legal and no shortcutting a switchback on any designated trail.
A complete list of all the prohibitions listed under Forest Order Number WNF-14-01-2013 can be found on the Wayne National Forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/wayne. In the left column, click on the Alerts & Notices tab.
