Elm Rd. Public Hunting Area

About this Location

Elm Road Public Hunting Area is a 135-acre archery hunting-only public hunting area in central Trumbull County. Access is provided from OH-5 just north of the OH-5/OH-82 Bypass.

This public hunting area features substantial wetlands along the southwestern portion of the area. The property is comprised of thick second-growth woods, small meadows, and patches of wetlands. The area is mostly flat terrain with a small creek that traverses the western end of the property. The extreme eastern portion of the site, running alongside Mosquito Creek, contains slightly steeper terrain and is located in the floodplain.

Trumbull County MetroParks received the 135 acres as a donation from the Trumbull County Commissioners in 2006. Shortly before the donation, the land had been targeted and procured in part through a Clean Ohio Grant written by the Trumbull County Planning Commission. As with other properties attained through Clean Ohio Grants, a set of restrictive covenants was attached to the deed of the real estate dictating that the land be kept as open space as required by the Clean Ohio program.

There are restrooms at nearby businesses and restaurants.
