Hero: Oreton
small-sr Icon
Located within the Vinton Furnace State Forest, Oreton is a short, 1-mile long dead-end gravel road with a few deep ruts and a few mud puddles. It is narrow at times through dense forest, hence pinstriping should be expected. At one time, this road led to the Oreton Lookout Tower. At 12,089 acres, Vinton Furnace State Park is the largest remaining intact block of forest in Ohio. It hosts the largest population of bobcats in the state and is very popular with hunters and anglers due to its extreme biodiversity. Per the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Vinton Furnace State Forest is open daily to visitors between 6 am and 11 pm. Legal campers, hunters, and anglers may be present during other times. The only camping is for hunters at the hunter's camp on TR-6, Experimental Forest Road.
