: Original description reads: "Scioto Trail Forest. Winter in the hills."
The forest was named after the Native American trail that ran from what is now Chillicothe to Portsmouth, called the Scioto Trail. During World War I, the area was used as an artillery range for Camp Sherman. Major development of the area took place in the 1930s when the Civilian Conservation Corps built most of the roads, lakes and early recreational facilities. The forest now covers 9,390 acres.
