Holiday In Hocking County, USA

Orientation

One of Ohio's Most Beautiful Regions

Hocking County can be found in south-eastern Ohio, a comfortable driving distance from major population centers like Cincinnati or Columbus. Its terrain is characterized by rolling hills, forests, and lakes, and focuses on the Hocking River, as it winds its way through the Allegheny Hills. The result is scenery that includes dramatic cliffs, and gorgeous views – things which make it a tourism hotspot.

Getting to Grips With Hocking County

The most popular part of the county for visitors is undoubtedly the Hocking Hills, which harbors plenty of retreats and spas, as well as innumerable vacation rentals. There aren't any large towns in the region, with the county seat Logan only having 7,000 residents or so. As a result, the atmosphere is laid-back and the pace of life is fairly slow.

How to Get to Hocking County

There are no airports or Amtrak stations in Hocking County. If you are flying, the best option is to arrive at Columbus, which is around 90 minutes' drive to the north. Logan is on Route 33, which runs across Ohio, and also provides access from the east, so driving won't be hard.

Activities

A Great Hiking Destination

Above all else, people come to Hocking County to experience the beauty of the hills and forests. This is prime hiking country, with miles of trails, particularly in the Hocking Hills State Park, where you'll find attractions like Ash Cave and Conkle's Hollow.

Heaven for Hunting and Fishing Fans

If you want to get out in the open and bag some ducks, or you just want to fish a week away, you can do so in Hocking County. There are belly boat fishing opportunities at Rose Lake, while Lake Logan is popular with duck hunters as well.

A Wonderful Family Destination

Families won't struggle to find things to do during their stay in Hocking County. Attractions like the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, the history shows on Sugarloaf Mountain and activities like ATV rentals or laser tag should keen everyone busy while they're away.

Hocking County is one of the least urbanized places in Ohio. Although the county stretches over 423 square miles, only around 2 percent of that area is classified as urban.

Top 5 Things to Do in Hocking County

1. Hike to Conkle's Hollow

The stone bluffs and dramatic gorge at Conkle's Hollow is one of the iconic sights of the Hocking Hills, and it's not a difficult hike to reach them. One of Ohio's deepest canyons, the gorge is a geological marvel, and makes for fantastic photo opportunities.

2. Descend into Ash Cave

Ash Cave is another of the Hocking Hills' natural marvels. Surrounded by picturesque gorges covered in wildflowers, the cave itself is some 700 feet long, while the cliffs around the opening dwarf all who visit.

3. Drive ATVs at R Adventure Park

There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy in Hocking County, including this ATV park just outside Logan. Along with nifty ATVs, the complex includes paintball arenas, ropes, and zip-lins, so it's an outdoor fans' dream.

4. Ride the Scenic Railway

There's no better way to see Hocking County than by hopping aboard this quaint steam railway. Set up in 1972, it runs from Nelsonville and passes up the Hocking River valley – offering some superb views along the way.

5. Watch the Tecumseh Outdoor Drama

On the slopes of Sugarloaf Mountain, tourists can watch a thrilling historical pageant which recounts the life of Tecumseh, who defended his people against invasion in the Hocking area in the 18th century.

Useful Information

Be Prepared to Enjoy a Stunning Outdoor Area

Before heading to the Hocking Hills, it pays to prepare thoroughly. So make sure you have sturdy walking boots, a good waterproof jacket, and the maps you need to take advantage of the dense network of trails throughout the State Park. And pick the right time to go. Spring is mild and usually bright, if a little wet, and summers are warm and much drier. The fall sees some amazing colors, so is another popular time to visit.

Catch the Area's Major Festivals

There's plenty going on in Hocking County almost all-year round. However, Logan's Washboard Music Festival is a definite highlight, bringing a feast of traditional music performers to the county seat (with an emphasis on washboard players). There are also some lovely events in smaller towns like Rockbridge, whose Lily Festival in mid-July mixes flowers, music, and craft markets. And there are fall events too, including September's Hocking Hills Fall Fest – Logan's major arts and crafts jamboree.
