Midwest Living Review
There aren't many modern stresses that can't be tamed with a quiet walk in the woods, and Hocking Hills Adventure Trek provides an excellent gateway into nature among the soaring forests and limestone outcrops of southeastern Ohio. Adventure Trek outings are completely customizable. Owner Jim Stratton will set up trips of just about any duration, difficulty level and focus depending on what you and your group want to see. Well-informed guides (mostly environmental studies majors from a nearby college) lead hikers past thick timber stands, rocky hillsides, waterfalls and other natural features, explaining the flora and fauna along the way.
In 2013, Adventure Trek added Shawnee storytelling tours. During these outings, tribe member Blue Jacket shares tales and wisdom passed down from his grandfather and fills the woods with mellow tunes from his wooden flute. We guarantee you'll return to the trailhead feeling more relaxed and recommitted to focusing on what really matters in life.
