Chance & Sara are great guides! I am deathly afraid of heights and they made me feel very comfortable in conquering my fears. The entire experience was exceptional. The hot dogs and smores were perfect. They encourage you the whole way!

Valley Zipline Tours

Reviewed By AmericanExplorer8500 - Marysville, Ohio

We highly enjoyed our experience here with some Florida friends. They wanted to zip and these guys are willing to zip in the cold. So let’s do it! This course is first class. I’ve zipped many places and found this course to be quite exhilarating. It’s so awesome to zip across the valley. Thanks to our charming, comical guides, and very cool course design, the day was epic. Can’t wait to return.

My 14yr old son was excited to zipline over Spring Break. I was white knuckled as I drove there - worried if I could manage with my fear of heights.
The staff were excellent and the safety precautions and preparations were thorough.
Was it frightening at points? You bet. But doing it anyways was a blast! Remember to scream as you go!
We had a great father-son experience. Will definitely return.

Conkles Hollow State Nature Preserve

Reviewed By James H - Cincinnati, Ohio

This was our second stop of the day after Rockhouse, coming into the area from the Northwest on 180. It was a hot day, but the cool gorge trail and deep shade of the hemlocks made for a very enjoyable hike. After taking the gorge trail, we then took the rim trail. I would advise doing both if you have the stamina, as you get a very different perspective on the beautiful terrain. The rim trail can be testy if you are not diligent about safety, but not a challenge for experienced hikers who use reasonable care. And it really does show you elements of the rock formations that you just can't get from the gorge. Highly recommend you spend time at Conkles Hollow.

Our experience with High Rock Adventures was wonderful. We stumbled upon their eco-tours online and booked the Rock Challenge Tour. My husband and I are both adventurous, outdoorsy and always up for a good challenge. Plus, we've done the traditional hikes all over Hocking Hills, so we wanted something a little different. The Rock Challenge was a great choice! Our tour guide was knowledgeable, professional, safety-conscious and just genuinely a great person to spend time with. He helped us tackle each challenge, took great pictures for us and even talked to us a lot about the land and the different plants. We even ate some of the plants along the path, which is something I've never done before. We learned a lot, got some great activity in and felt awesome when we left. We will be recommending High Rock Adventures to all of our family and friends!

Rockbridge State Nature Preserve

Reviewed By Gypsywitch - Michigan

Shower in the most powerful bug spray you can find. These mosquitos will feast on any unsprayed millimeter of skin. This was the only trail we encountered with ravenous bugs (and we had doused ourselves with bug spray before we even got close to the wooded part).

We drove out to find this preserve and ended up on a narrow one lane road that surely wasn't right because there was no sign like all the other parks in the area, but it was in fact correct.

It's a lot of up and down on tree roots that you can't take you're time to navigate very well because you're being attacked by hungry bugs. The view at the end is pretty, though again, you can't stop to appreciate it because of being eaten alive. We took a few quick photos and all but ran back out through the woods as fast as our heaving lungs would allow. On the plus side it was a rainy day and no on else was there so there were no crowds. Downside, running through the woods with umbrellas isn't easy.

We arrived in Hocking Hills on Friday, did a little hiking and ended up here late afternoon. The bar was full and there were a few people in other spaces (main room, covered patio, uncovered patio). We waited for space at the bar and enjoyed tasting several wines at a leisurely pace, chatting with the friendly staff and a few patrons. We liked the wines (and especially the peach wine slushy) enough that we knew we'd go back. Saturday was a completely different scene, lots more people, but the staff was ready for it, still very attentive, and we enjoyed sitting outside by the fire pit for quite a while. Also got to enjoy stuff from food truck both days - yummy!

Reviewed By Mctravelers

A quick stop on our trip and the kids enjoyed looking at all the different kind sand shapes. They liked the animal ones the best. It's a good way to kill some time while waiting on the next timed activity. The welcome center next door has a lot of brochures and info about the area and you can find some good coupons too. We found one in the guide book for a free kids meal with purchase of an adult meal at the Olde Dutch Restaurant, after we had already eaten there of course! See my review on that under this city also.

If you want something similar to hiking our great state parks but don’t want to make the drive, this is a great alternative. The rugged rocky trails offer great steep climbs and an excellent cardio workout. There are not many “views” but miles of beautiful forest and hollows. People have been known to underestimate this park so know your limits. Bring water for sure. Happy hiking.
