Hike the Hocking Hills State Park
When it comes to the biggest draws of Hocking Hills, it does not get any better than Hocking Hills State Park. This expansive park features several different areas and trails that you can explore. Hocking Hills does receive quite a bite of snowfall during the winter which may scare off unsuspecting visitors from attempting a hike. However, if you dress for the occasion, you will find exploring the Hocking Hills State Park in the winter to be a magical experience. Where you would typically find a flowing stream or waterfall will now be frozen solid. The ice formations themselves are a true beauty to see in person. You can stick to the easier trails found off Conkles Hollow and Ash Cave if you are worried about slipping since they offer paved trails.
Go Cross Country Skiing
You can also take advantage of the snow cover by going cross-country skiing in the area. This is a great way to explore the surrounding community. All you need is to rent some gear or schedule a tour with a local provider. This is a great activity to do with family or schedule with a loved one for a romantic outing.
