When you think of the Hocking Hills, it's easy to think of those gorgeous hiking trails. Or maybe the perfect cabin to sleep in after all of exploring those trails. But there is so much more to this area.

All you have to do is stop in six shops, return your passport to the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center and you are entered to win. You could win prizes from local stores or you could win the grand prize: 2 nights stay in a cabin for four, Canopy Tours for four, Canoe Tours for four,  Adventure Golf for four, Candle Making for four, Lunch for four and Dinner for four.
