Trail Information: Wayehutta OHV Trail System

AKA: add an alternate name

In 1981 the USDA Forest Service purchased the Roy A. Taylor Forest from a private owner. Previously, the Mead Paper Corperation logged most of the 40,000-acre forest during its ownership. Because this top tree-growing site has rich soil, the forest is home to some of the healthiest, fastest growing hardwoods.
