Hiking Trails - Hocking Hills State Park
Hocking Hills State Park offers over 25 miles of trails to hike. Because of the huge number of cliffs (many of them are not easily seen until you are right nearly over the edge), the park has a strictly enforced trail law-all hikers must remain on designated trails at all times.Before you hike with your kids, make sure they understand they need to stay on the trail! Look for the signs at the beginning of the trails for warnings and always keep a good eye on your children.
