Valley Run Wildlife Area

This 304-acre wildlife area is located in central Carroll County, 2.5 miles northwest of Carrollton and 1.0 mile southeast of New Harrisburg on Bacon Road (CR 24). The area lies in the unglaciated foothills of the Allegheny Plateau hill region of Ohio. County and township roads provide good access to the wildlife area. A small parking lot is located along Bacon Road (CR 24) approximately 1/2 mile northeast of the intersection with Glory Road (TR 155).

Wildlife found on the area are common forest species including wild turkeys, ruffed grouse, fox-squirrels, and white-tailed deer. The cottontail rabbit and all furbearers common to the region are also found on the area. Woodland songbirds can be seen in abundance during the spring and fall migrations.

This area remains largely undeveloped except for several dirt roads throughout the interior that remain as evidence of past logging operations. These roads allow excellent hiking and wildlife viewing opportunities for the public.
