About Holmes Wetland
The Holmes Wetland is on Stonehouse Road (County Road 42) in bottomlands along the Little Muskingum River. Once wetlands were prominent across Ohio’s landscape. Today, they are reduced to scattered fragments. Wayne National Forest is committed to reconstructing many of the historic wetlands which were once found in the forest.

About Wayne National Forest
The Wayne National Forest is located in the hills of southeastern Ohio. This small national forest, in the heart of the heavily populated Midwest, covers almost a quarter million acres of Appalachian foothills. The Wayne is divided into three blocks administered by two Ranger Districts at Athens and Ironton. A field office is also located east of Marietta.

Visitors to national forest lands are welcome to camp, hike, hunt, and fish. The Forest boundaries surround a checkerboard pattern of ownership, with public and private ownership interspersed. There are over 300 miles of trails on the Forest for hiking, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) riding, mountain biking, or horseback riding.
