About Moonville Tunnel
Moonville was a small, isolated, nineteenth-century mining town in sparsely populated Vinton County. The town is no more; only a cemetery and abandoned rail tunnel remain. Moonville Tunnel can be found today deep in a lonely section of Zaleski State Forest. The area around Moonville Tunnel is considered by some to be one of the haunted places in Ohio.

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.
