OH man, Hocking Hills.......uuuuhhhhh, where do I start?! lol
yeah, this could take a minute.
Spockster is right. Old Man's Cave is the big draw down there (and for good reason too!). yes, take your walking shoes. but, for anyone that is not into hiking, there is a very short walk to Old Man's Cave. but there is also miles of trails around Old Man's Cave too. Old Man's Cave is a must see while in the Hills. as for Ash Cave? there is no easier hike in the hills. you park across the road on RT56
, and walk on a concrete path through the woods for about 5 minutes and BAM!, you're there. it's way worth the very short walk to see it.
for roads to ride on? there is no shortage for roads. all are hilly, curvy, and filled with beautiful scenery. RT664
, you will take this route to get to Old Man's Cave. it's a very nice ride. it's always in great condition. it's one of the main roads down there. RT664
is off of RT33
is the main highway through the Hills.
off of RT33
, check out RT374
, will take you past some of the parks and dump you off onto RT56
, is a nice ride too. also, that's where legendary "Jimbo's" is at. Jimbo's is a cool bar.
, this rout crosses RT33
and so many other great routes in the state of Ohio. RT93
, runs North and South through almost the whole state of Ohio. from just south of Akron to all the way south to Ironton, Ohio, on the Ohio River. RT93
, is one of the all time greatest motorcycle roads in the state of Ohio.
in the Nelsonville, area ride North up RT78
, this route is called "Rim of the World
", and for very good reasons. ride it, and you will understand.
, north up to Ringgold, Ohio, not only is this drop you off at an other great route (RT555
, "The Triple Nickel", Ohio's version of the "Dragon"), but there is also a free
shooting range in that area! RT555
, runs North to South form Zanesville, Ohio, to Little Hocking, Ohio, on the Ohio River.
places to check out? RT33 Brewery. it's right off of RT33
. Millstone BBQ is a must! also, if you stop at either of these places, they are right down the road from each other, take a ride down Lake Logan Rd., past Lake Logan. it's a short ride, but way worth the time.
check out Lake Hope, right off RT278
, out of Nelsonville. there is also a free
shooting range on RT278
, just south of Lake Hope. it was just made over last summer and is a really nice range. did I mention it was FREE?! lol
while in that area, if you are feeling adventurous, check out the "Moonville Tunnel". it's (so they say) Haunted.
well, that's just a few things that I can think of off the top of my head. feel free to ask about anything else down there. I'm sure I can help you out. lol
how long will you be staying down there? Spockster is right, too much to see/do, it can't be done all in a day.
here's a link for more info....
