Things to do in Hocking Hills, Ohio: Exploring The Outdoors
Ohio’s Hocking Hills region, an hour southeast of Columbus, is the kind of place where roller-coaster hills wind from one adventure to the next amid spectacular scenery full of waterfalls, some of the state’s largest caves, and towering blackhand sandstone. Hiking, biking, rock climbing, and camping are all game on in the several state parks, none of which charge an entrance fee and encompass this entire region. So come along as we explore all of this and more.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
