Explore the Hocking Hills State Park
No matter what time of year you come to visit Hocking Hills you will find yourself exploring Hocking Hills State Park at some point. This is the top attraction in the area and continues to pull in thousands of visitors each year. Hocking Hills State Park is even more beautiful during the winter where you can explore with less visitors around you. The park can be covered in a layer of snow that adds a whole new ambience to your hiking.
The park is separated into seven distinct areas, including Ash Cave, Old Man’s Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, and more. Each area has a dedicated hiking trail taking you around the area. Many of the trails are dog friendly and some are even paved allowing wheelchair access. Our colder winters will even see waterfalls and streams frozen in place for a unique perspective that only this season can provide. Come check it out for yourself over Presidents’ Day weekend!
