About Symmes Wildlife Area
This 114-acre wildlife area is located in Symmes Township and lies 2.3 miles northwest of Waterloo in Lawrence County. Access is obtained from Township Road 320, also known as Old Forest Ridge Road.
Symmes Wildlife Area was obtained in 1990 as a gift from John W. Hall. Management work includes protection and improvement of existing woodlands with the main emphasis on forest game management.
White-tailed deer, wild turkey, and gray squirrel are the principal game species. All furbearers common to the region are also found on the area. A variety of woodland songbirds are attracted to Symmes Wildlife Area, including the scarlet tanager, pileated woodpecker, red-headed woodpecker, ovenbird, and various other songbirds.
Access to the area is gained from parking along Old Forest Ridge Road (Township Road 320) about 2 miles from the intersection of OH-141 and Old Forest Ridge Road.
