Hocking Hills Biking
While the roadways in the Hocking Hills might not be suitable for amateur riders, the area does feature one of the best bicycling options around: the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway. Stretching 20 miles from Athens to Nelsonville, the path follows along the Hocking River, a tributary of the Ohio. The name is comes from the ancient Adena Indians who lived in this area and called the Hocking, "Hockhocking" or "bottle river" for the tapered bottleneck shape of this river valley in southeast Ohio.
Area bicycle shops can assist with your ride by providing rentals, service and other essentials.
