Get Ready to Experience the Best of Hocking Hills in Winter
While the winter season is one that generally inspires people to cozy up and enjoy time indoors, a trip to Hocking Hills may do just the opposite! This dynamic destination provides visitors with a tantalizing terrain that’s just as magical in the winter months as it is when the grass and trees are green. Instead of cuddling up and simply enjoying the comforts that await in our Hocking Hills winter cabins, make sure to make some time to get out and explore while you’re here in the chillier months. As you bundle up and make your way outdoors, you’ll be gifted with some of Mother Nature’s finest work waiting for you!
Explore Ash Cave
Situated in Hocking Hills State Park, Ash Cave is a favorite landmark location in the summer months whose dimensions make it just as amazing in the winter with far fewer crowds to contend with too. Hike your way to the cave and be prepared for some picture-perfect moments at the entrance, particularly if the snow has fallen. This cave includes a waterfall that will likely be glittering with ice at this time of year. As magical as it is peaceful, a trip to Ash Cave in the winter shouldn’t be missed. While independent trips through the park are always a possibility, those looking for a more in-depth experience may want to consider booking a guided hike, particularly if the terrain is completely new.
Additional Areas of Hocking Hills State Park
While Ash Cave might be the most popular area of Hocking Hills State Park there are also plenty of other trails to explore. You will need more than a single day to see everything inside the park including areas such as Whispering Cave, Conkle’s Hollow, Cedar Falls, and Rock House. Many of the scenic areas include frozen waterfalls that stand still in place as ice. Wildlife will be more active in the area during the winter. Natural stone bridges are a marvel to see up close. Just because it is winter does not mean you cannot go outdoors and explore.
Visit the Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum
If you happen to be headed over to the visitor center to get information on those ideal winter trails that await, take time to step inside the charming Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum to warm up. Once inside, guests can enjoy browsing a collection of over 3,000 pencil sharpeners that took more than 20 years to collect. This eclectic stop often finds guests staying longer than they planned as the sights are intriguing and truly one of a kind.
Dine at Ridge Inn
When you’re ready for a cozy and comforting meal after a day of outdoor fun, head over to Laurelville and enjoy time at Ridge Inn. This transformed coffee shop is now one of the area’s most popular fine dining establishments. Guests can take a seat in an elegant dining room and enjoy everything from burgers and salads to soups and sandwiches. Ridge Inn welcomes couples, groups and families and comes with a side of friendly service. Your leftovers will warm up great in your Hocking Hills winter rentals as well!
Check Out Local Spas and Wineries
There is no better way to relax during the winter than a spa treatment. Head over to the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls for a variety of spa services to make you feel rejuvenated. After you are done pampering yourself with a spa treatment head down the street to Hocking Hills Winery. They use a special grape variation that is exclusive to the region and helps create some delicious wines.
