About Irish Ridge Road
Irish Ridge Road runs 2.4 miles south from Long Ridge Road to OH-278. (This road is also labeled Bolin Road on Google maps.)

Irish Ridge is one of the better roads in the forest of a good variety of bird species. On the north side of Forest Road 15, just west of the intersection with Irish Ridge is an excellent clear cut where you can get out and hike around a bit.‚Äč
