Need information about the Wayne National Forest?
A great place to start is our Headquarters and Welcome Center located between Nelsonville and Athens, Ohio. If you're traveling in the area, take a break and learn more about our history, purchase maps or get a trail permit, and get information about local attractions.
This site is also the administrative offices for the Forest Supervisor and the Athens District Ranger. It also serves as the Forest Welcome Center.
Open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Open Saturdays (Memorial Day-Labor Day Weekend) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Call 740.753.0101 to talk with one of our trained staff who are ready to help guide you to the many and varied recreational and educational experiences available on the Forest.
