The Wayne National Forest in Ohio is waiving its trail fees over the Veterans Day holiday weekend, Nov. 8-11. The fee waivers are offered in cooperation with other federal agencies under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. This fee waiver applies to trail use only.

“One way we honor our veterans for the dedication and sacrifices they have made is to offer them and their families an opportunity to enjoy Wayne National Forest trails without the need to purchase a trail permit,” said Forest Supervisor Tony Scardina.

The Forest Service also honors active duty military members year-round with the free Interagency Annual Military Pass honored at all Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service sites charging entrance or standard amenity fees.

The Wayne National Forest has over 400 miles of multiple-use trails, which include horse, all-terrain vehicle (ATV), off-highway motorcycle (OHM), mountain bike, and hiking trails that are open from April 15 through December 15. Hiking is allowed on all trails year-round.
