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!

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.

Rock House

Reviewed By kmpayton - Madison, Virginia

This hike wasn’t originally on our list while visiting the area. After my husband read the description of the hike, we moved it to our first hike. It ended up being our favorite. Absolutely incredible!! There are no words or pictures to do it justice-just go see with your own eyes. Pretty easy hike, well maintained trail, dog friendly. Need shoes with good grip for slick rocks in the Winter months. You will not be disappointed. The rock house is fascinating!

Cantwell Cliffs

Reviewed By Nathan Q - Curtice, Ohio

We hiked most of the sites in the area this weekend. Four adults, three teenagers and one energetic seven year old had a great time at Cantwell Cliffs, which certainly offered more to climb. Heed the warnings and pay attention to your surroundings and any little ones as there are plenty of unmarked cliffs one could fall off. It is only as safe as your decision making. "Fat Ladies (men) Squeeze" is a cool experience for all ages. You haven't hiked Hocking Hills unless you visit Cantwell Cliffs.

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!

Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum

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.
