Mountain Biking Archers Fork Loop Trail
#55 of 109 mountain bike trails in Ohio
#8,035 in the world
Don't miss the large overhang (Cave) and Natural Bridge (one of only 7 in Ohio) which are on this trail.
IMHO the best way to ride this loop is counter clockwise. When you get to the intersection noted above, you are right beside the cave. Take the right mentioned above (counter clockwise) and within 1/2 mile you will come to the sign on your left for the Natural Bridge. It's a short, down and back trail. It gets dangerously steep at the Natural Bridge, so be careful and walk.
After the bridge, just follow the trail. It's fairly easy going this direction. You will cross several dirt roads on this loop and will come back out right at the cave, just below the cemetary parking. The map will show other parking areas if you wish to do a smaller loop and use the roads in the area to shorten the loop.
Archers Fork Trail includes part of the North Country Trail and can be linked with other rides as well. The Wayne Ultra Series Race for 2008 will be using a portion of Archers Fork Loop. Check out the pictures and hope you go enjoy this trail.

Tough Climbs, however, rewarded with some great downhill riding as well. Numerous ways to get to this trail. Pick up a Wayne National Forest Map, Archers Fork is listed. From New Matamoros take 260 west to Hohman, go left on 34, drive a few miles, not far past Township Rd.411 you will see a sign on your left. Park at the Cemetary. Follow the signs down the old road, as the road levels, you will see the trail go off to the left. Go about 80 to 100 feet down the trail and to ride it counter clockwise, take a left on a difficult to see trail. You are there.
