Directions:

From Marietta, go north on SR 7 approximately 32 miles, through New Matamoras.  Continue past North Fork Road and Hutchison Road, and just after entering Monroe County, turn left on Earley Ridge Road.  This is a very narrow and steep township road.  Go 2.1 miles and the property is on the right, across from junction with Hutchison Road.  This is the shortest way.  Alternate route:  From SR 7 turn left on North Fork Road (Twp 66), which is the second road to the left after New Matamoras.  At top of ridge go right at “Y” on Earley Ridge Road.  Property corner and oil well access road are on the left across from junction with Hutchison Road.

Property Description:

Property is a wildlife sanctuary- used for bird watching, hiking, passive use, open to public for these purposes. Timber will never be harvested-only vegetation management will be removal of non-native invasive species so that in 100 years this will be an example of mature forest appropriate for native wildlife.
