About Dysart Woods

The Dysart Woods Laboratory is located in unglaciated southeastern Ohio. In contrast to the glaciated part of the state this area is characteristically hilly with local relief exceeding 200 feet. The sedimentary bedrock throughout the region is composed mostly of sandstone and shale with coal seams occurring variably from near the surface to hundreds of feet underground. The rainfall and temperature conditions are generally well suited for the development of deciduous forests. Dysart Woods, a 50-acre tract of old-growth oak forest located in Belmont County, is the largest known remnant of the original forest of southeastern Ohio.

Directions to Dysart Woods: Take Belmont exit off I-70. Proceed south toward the town of Belmont on OH-149. In Belmont, turn off OH-149 and on to highway OH-147 heading south. Drive south approximately 5 miles. A small wooden Dysart sign on the right indicates the entrance to the property. Rustic restrooms are located adjacent to the white farmhouse on the left. Parking is available at the trailheads.
