The Athens-Zaleski Lizard Map is the most comprehensive map ever made of the area. It features public lands, preserves, state parks, national forests, lakes and trails. Explore all the best recreation that the Athens, Nelsonville and Zaleski region has to offer with the Athens Zaleski Lizard Map.
A beautifully designed, easy to read topographic map featuring contour lines, elevation data, shaded relief and all the key details you need to plan your adventures: backroads and trails, trail use designations, road surfaces (paved/gravel/4wd), parking access, campsites, public lands, historic sites and more.
"I have a couple of your maps and they are the BEST!"
Lizard Maps are durable, waterproof, and give you the big picture – the map opens to 24” x 36” and folds easily to 4” x 8” to fit in your back pocket. The Athens-Zaleski Lizard Map scale is 1:31,000 (1 inch = 0.5 mile). Includes both lat./lon. and UTM coordinate systems.
Public land: includes most of Zaleski State Forest, a section of Wayne National Forest, all of Lake Hope and Strouds Run State Park as well as land owned by the town of Athens and Ohio University.
Destinations: include the Lake Hope and Strouds Run State Parks which both offer camping sites and lake recreation.
Roads: all Lizard Maps show which roads are paved, dirt/gravel or 4wd roads as well as which are gated. Perfect for bicyclists, dual sport riders and overlanders looking to put together a remote backcountry route across public lands.
Major hiking trails: include the 23-mile Zaleski State Forest Backpacking Trail shown in its entirety including the South, Middle and North Loops as well as connecting trails. The Zaleski Backpacking Trail is among the most popular in the state. It has three loops that are roughly 10 miles each, depending on how you enter and exit you can do a 10, 20 or 30+ mile trip with designated group campsites that have latrines and water. Not having to carry water makes this a great trip for all ages.
Major biking trails: include an incredible network of nested loops in Lake Hope and Strouds Run State Parks, as well as the Hockhocking Adena 19-mile bikeway between Athens and Nelsonville. Road bikers and gravel riders enjoy a massive network of paved and gravel roads in the surrounding area, including the Moonville Rail Trail. If you think Ohio is flat you haven't been to Athens! These hills may be short but they are incredibly steep. Athens made it in Bicycling Magazine’s Top 100 Climbs in America - wait until you see what a 24% grade feels like!
Even more trails: Lizard Maps highlight and designate public trails and paths including hiking, biking and rail trails managed by federal, state and local authorities. The color-coded Bridle Trails are shown for equestrian riders.
Points of interest: campgrounds, picnic areas, climbing areas, reservable car camping sites, scenic overlooks and lizard spots. Historic Adena Mounds are shown which date to 800BC.
