Class I-II Clear Fork Mohican River, OH

Mohican Scenic River (Pleasant Hill Lake to Mohican State Park)

The lower section of the Clear Fork and the Mohican River consists of a lush forested river valley and clean, flowing waters which provide valuable habitats for numerous flora and fauna. Clear Fork Gorge State Nature Preserve lies adjacent to the scenic river. Other public lands in the watershed include Mohican State Park and Mohican Memorial State Forest. Scenic river designation was initiated by local residents and businesses, including a number of canoe liveries and campgrounds. Resolutions of support were passed by four counties (Ashland, Coshocton, Holmes and Knox) and a number of local townships. The river system is navigable by canoe and offers a high quality recreational experience for users. There are a variety of camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking and picnicking activities available along the Mohican River. (Ohio DNR)
