“nearly entirely wooded with oak, hickory, & yellow poplar”

This 1,729-acre wildlife area is located in Coal and Liberty townships, Jackson County, Ohio.  The wildlife area is accessible by way of county and township roads from U.S. 35 and State Route 93. The topography of the wildlife area varies from steep and rocky to rolling hills.  Trails established through previous logging activity allow easy access on foot through most of the property.  Nearly all of this wildlife area is wooded.  Oak, hickory, and yellow poplar are the dominant tree species. Like many of Ohio's wildlife areas, Coalton Wildlife Area consists of former coal-mining lands. It is located just northeast of Lake Katharine State Nature Preserve, but lacks the degree of spectacular gorge formation found there, because the blackhand sandstone, which forms the gorges, is only exposed in the lowest stream valleys.
