No fires, pets, going off-trail etc. Guidelines are posted at the ranger station.
The Joan Jones Portman Trail offers a simple run that is a steady uphill on the way out and a steady downhill on the way back. The view at the top, like all of Southern Ohio, is best between fall and early spring.
Flora & Fauna
Feral hogs can be a nuisance in southern Ohio, but the chances are rare. Be on the look out for foxes!
