As I venture out into scenic Hocking Hills forests, I am whisked away to childhood; reminiscent of hikes with the family and dogs by our side. Just an hour southeast of my hometown of Columbus, Ohio, this natural wonderland captivates my Midwest soul time and time again.Hocking Hills Canopy Tours is the first of its kind in Ohio, enthralling outdoor enthusiasts, adrenaline junkies and families alike. Defy gravity while soaring through the canopy of the forest, caves, gorges, ravines and waterfalls.
With six award winning adventures to choose from, there truly is something for everyone!Original Canopy Tour: Nature-Lover meets Thrill-Seeker! Glide through 10 zip lines, 5 adventure sky bridges, and a cave with waterfall in a 2.5 to 3-hour treetop adventure. Looking to zip by the light of the moon?
