Tips for birding Hunt Hollow
From the intersection of OH-93 head east on OH-56 to the small town of New Plymouth then head South on OH-328. Enter the Forest at Hunt Hollow. Turn left on County Road 1 and go .3 mile. Turn right onto Hunt Hollow Road (Forest Road 18). (Note that Google maps incorrectly labels this as an extension of Long Ridge Road.)

I have timed different routes and that one wins every time. You should be able to find most of the regular warblers and other passerines within the first couple of miles on Forest Road 18 in Hunt Hollow.

About Zaleski State Forest
The Zaleski State Forest is the second largest forest in the system. The Zaleski State Forest Backpack Trail was established on the forest to provide backpacking opportunities as well as to introduce some scenic and historic aspects of the forest. The main trail is a loop of 23.5 miles. There is also a 10-mile day loop trail.
