It's another weekend full of fun things to do in the Hocking Hills!

Whether you want to get outside to explore or check all of the fun things you can do indoors here, there is a lot going on. Here's what you should plan on doing this weekend:

Celebrate Valentine's Day

There are so many ways to have a special Valentine's Day in the Hocking Hills. You can to try the special dinner menu at The Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls. Or maybe you'd like to share your love with the Celebrate the Heart benefit. Or make your own special candle together at Christmas Treasures. Celebrate love here this weekend. 

Get Out for a Hike

You have two chances this weekend to explore the trails with a group. Join the Conkle's Creep for a short hike at Conkle's Hollow. Or take a trip to Clear Creek Metro Park for a self-guided backcountry hike to the ice cave.  

Meet an Owl

Have you ever wanted to learn more about the wildlife that calls the Hocking Hills home? Here's your chance to have an expert answer your questions about owls before you go out on a hike to call owls. You will also roast hot dogs and s'mores over an open fire. 

Make a Stop at the Farmers' Market

Is your goal this year to eat food that is better for you? Then this is a great time to start eating local. Get started with a stop at the Athens Farmers' Market. And even better, you'll get the chance to shake the hand of the person that made your food.
