Climb through terrain … or soar above it … at Hocking Hills State Park

My husband and I spent a weekend down in Southeast Ohio’s Hocking Hills area. Having both grown up in hilly terrain, we love hiking around Hocking Hills State Park and other nearby areas. I took flight in a zipline tour of the hills this time, plus we visited the Columbus Washboard Factory.

Here are some photos of our visit.

To take the SuperZip with Hocking Hills Canopy Tour, you have to climb up this huge tower. Instead of the stairs, you can take a rambling walk through the trees up a swaying ramp.

That’s not me — I was too chicken to fly like Superman across the hills! I sat in the harness instead

Yes, those tiny things are people exploring Old Man’s Cave at Hocking Hills State Park

We also brought our kayaks and floated down the Hocking Hills River … with about a zillion other (fairly drunk) boaters … go early to avoid the rush

  1. I grew up in this area and it is indeed beautiful. There is so much to see and do and if you like hiking and taking photos it will be an amazing experience. I think my favorite is Ash Cave. It is interesting to learn the history and especially how the Indians used the caves during the time they inhabited them. Your photos brought back wonderful childhood memories.
