Lots of MFR! Not maintained lots of downed trees, but beautiful nonetheless! A few trib x-Ings and BONUS a suspension bridge. Worth the visit!

Tried to get to this trail, drove all the roads around it and used the apps directions. I don't think it exists anymore as they are logging the area and there are "Posted" no entry signs everywhere. We even drove down the oil well road but it just led to the construction.

I'm amazed at the underuse of the Shenango river river lake. This area is great for families to get out for awhile and enjoy some fresh air. Hiking especially.
