Ecotourism in the Hocking Hills

One of the most important sustainability efforts in our area is ecotourism. Each year, millions of visitors come to our area to explore Hocking Hills State Park. The park encompasses 2,000 acres of forests, waterfalls, and recess caves across the Hocking Hills region of southeastern Ohio. 

The best way to make your trip eco-friendly is through ecotourism. This simply refers to exploring our area’s natural beauty in a way that respects the native plant and wildlife. There are many outdoor activities to choose from like Hocking Hills scenic hiking trails. A few of our favorites include the hikes to Cantwell Cliffs, Rock House, and Conkle’s Hollow. 

Another popular way to practice ecotourism is through Hocking Hills wildlife viewing. The ecosystem here sustains a wide variety of species from barred owls to bobcats! Hocking Hills State Park is a great place to track wildlife. There are also many great spots for birding in the Hocking Hills region.
