I live right in the middle of Zaleski State Forrest and it is beautiful. It is Nature at its BEST!!! I would like to see it beter preserved. The state has been logging some of it and that clear cutting is not a good thing. It leaves the land bare and it washes.
Besides looking awfjul.

“A nice getaway from busier parks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

This was my third trip to Zaleski State Forest. We visited the shooting range on this occasion and had a great time. Remember to take targets and something to hang them with.

Try driving the forest roads and hitting the trails. My favorite is walking the old RR tracks to Moonville Tunnel! Next time I think we will try the backpacking trail.

At certain times of the year, Lake Hope, which lies within the forest, you can stop by the nature center to hand-feed hummingbirds!

There is a large variety of landscape types and activities to choose from, making this a nice destination if you want to get away from more crowded state parks and forests.
