Hocking Hills, Ohio's Crown Jewel

As of 6:00 p.m. Thursday July 23  mask or face coverings become mandatory in the State of Ohio. You may find yourself in a position where it is not possible to be 6 feet apart from someone outside your travel group. When this happens PLEASE cover your face. This is the responsible thing to do. Thank you.

There are many parks and outdoor adventures to keep everyone entertained throughout your visit. Below is a list of the many parks open for hiking, boating, fishing and relaxing in the fresh air. In addition to these parks there are many adventure outfitters open and ready to provide a safe and fun experience. Social distance naturally as you fly through the tree tops, climb a real rock wall, explore on horseback, drop a line, paddle down a lazy river, fine tune your putting skills or pet some critters here and here

From July 2 most of Hocking Hills State Park was opened with redesigned trails to facilitate social distancing. Our many, locally owned restaurants and taverns are also open for dine-in service and most are also offering carry-out, some offer limited delivery. Our shops and galleries are open with safe distancing.

Enjoy your visit, stay well and thank you for choosing to visit the Hocking Hills. Be sure to check out some of these gems:

Trails have been reconfigured and are one-way to accommodate social distancing. Please be familiar with the trail, the distance and difficulty of the trail before you begin hiking. Only medical emergencies are being allowed to turn around mid-trail. If you are not sure you can complete the trail as configured please choose an easier/shorter trail. Thank you.
