For those planning a Hocking Hills getaway during the summer or fall seasons, the park will be the perfect temperature to easily spend multiple hours outside. The treetops keep the trails shaded so you can stay comfortable. The creeks and waterfalls will be flowing, providing plenty of photo opportunities. Visiting in the winter is also highly recommended for a romantic experience. During the colder months, visitors will find the trails and trees dusted with a light snow cover that provides a romantic ambiance. The waterfalls are often frozen completely solid for beautiful views. Much of the wildlife is also more active during the colder months of the year, so you are almost guaranteed to see something out in the park.
