Tips for birding Mohican State Forest
Mohican is noted for its rugged topography with hemlock ravines, upland pine plantations and rich mature forested slopes. It contains about 5700 acres. Good birding is in the Clear Fork Gorge – either up or down the Clear Fork of the Mohican River. Access this area from the parking area at the Covered Bridge. Many other good sites and trails can be explored with the use of a park/forest map.

Take OH-97 east of Butler. Take OH-3 south of Loudonville.

Sometimes road to Covered Bridge is closed due to ice.
