Acadia Cliffs Wildlife Area

This unique, 273-acre wildlife area lies in the southwest corner of Washington County. It can be reached by way of County Road 3 from State Route 555.

The area includes steep, rocky terrain, varied forest types, and a small stream. Nearly all of it is wooded. The ridges and steep slopes are mostly mature, upland oak-hickory forest. One stream, Twomile Run, flows from north to south through the area.

This area was received as a donation from the ODNR-Division of Natural Areas and Preserves in 1998. Wildlife management work has included the protection and improvement of existing woodland.

Hunting is the major recreational use, along with nature study, hiking, bird watching, mushroom hunting, and berry and nut picking.

The area is most popular for gray and fox squirrel hunting. Ruffed grouse and deer hunting are also popular. Although trapping is limited, furbearers can be found at Twomile Run.

A 112-acre portion of Acadia Cliffs Wildlife Area was dedicated as a state nature preserve featuring a sandstone cliff community and upland oak forest.
