About Hocking Hills
As Ohio's top adventure destination, Hocking Hills has no shortage of outdoor fun for visitors looking for some fresh air. With plenty of opportunities for hiking and exploration, adventure-seekers are sure to be right at home. Book Hocking Hills cabin rentals for couples, families, or friends, and get ready for a vacation to remember.
The Hocking Hills area has four complete seasons, with warm summers and cool winters. In July and August, temperatures typically reach the low- to mid-80s, while winter temperatures dip into the 20s. With mild temperatures and stunning fall colors, autumn is often the busiest season for Hocking Hills tourism, as visitors flock to enjoy the area's natural beauty.
Hocking Hills enjoys a relatively remote location in southeastern Ohio, but it's just an hour's drive from Port Columbus International Airport in nearby Columbus. For those who want to take advantage of your time in this scenic area and explore the trails and parks to their fullest, stay in Hocking Hills cabin rentals, which are close to everything, including hiking, waterfalls, caves, and wildlife. Drive between cabins and the many state forests and recreation areas to make the most of your stay.
Things to do
The biggest challenge of planning a trip to Hocking Hills is often deciding which park to focus on. Start with a trip to Hocking Hills State Park, which has over 2,300 acres of hiking, fishing, hunting, and swimming. You'll find a range of landscapes here, with cliffs, waterfalls, and shady gorges.
Another top pick in Hocking Hills is Conkles Hollow State Nature Preserve, which dazzles visitors with over 350 million years of natural history. Don't miss the preserve's spectacular Black Hand sandstone cliffs, the spring wildflowers, or the beautiful array of fall colors.
Have the adventure of a lifetime with a canopy tour of the Hocking Hills area. Choose from one of several tour options from Hocking Hills Canopy Tours, and zip along the treetops and through the forest to see the area from a whole new perspective. Rentals are also available for kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats for those hoping to visit Lake Logan, so make sure to book reservations ahead of time.
Rock House is the only real cave in the Hocking Hills and also worth a visit. It is a 200-foot long tunnel with a 25-foot high ceiling located about halfway up a tall sandstone cliff. Because of its location and the presence of “hominy holes” (small recesses in the rock used for cooking by Native Americans), it has been a popular spot with visitors for many years now.
For an indoor activity that will appeal to all ages, stop at the Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum. This unique museum features an impressive collection of nearly 3,500 pencil sharpeners collected by a single enthusiast. You'll find the collection on display at the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center. Another family-friendly activity is taking a ride on the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, which has been a staple in the Hocking Hills since 1972. It’s a nonprofit railroad committed to educating the public about historic railroad equipment and offers rides through the hills in open-air cars or 1930s commuter coaches.
No matter what time of year you visit, there's always something happening in the Hocking Hills area. In mid-June, the Washboard Music Festival in Logan signals the beginning of summer. Listen to over 40 musicians play a variety of styles that range from jazz to jug band, and don't miss the parade or the many local food vendors.
If you're looking for a great event for the whole family, you won't want to miss the Parade of the Hills in Nelsonville. From the buzzing midway to the down-home cooking to the galleries of regional art to three different parades, there's something for everyone here. If you visit in the fall, plan your trip around the Circleville Pumpkin Show, which has entertained locals and tourists for over a century. Sample all kinds of pumpkin treats, try your luck at the contests, and scope out the larger-than-life pumpkin display.
Adventure awaits in this action-packed destination. From rustic Hocking Hills cabins to canopy tours to hiking, there's no shortage of fun in this scenic Ohio region.
