Hocking Hills has no shortage of adventurous outdoor activities. From hiking and rock climbing to exploring caves and waterfalls, there are plenty of activities to satisfy your inner adrenaline junkie. If you are looking for a heart-racing pursuit that also offers a one-of-a-kind perspective of the area, then ziplining is the activity for you!

Hocking Hills Canopy Tours offers a variety of adventures that cater to a range of age groups. Choose between several different tours, learn all about the safety of ziplining, and then slide through the skies for breathtaking views of the region that simply cannot be seen any other way. We have listed out our favorites below, but be sure to take a peek at their website too for more details on everything they offer!

Tour Options

The Original Canopy Tour is designed for the nature-loving thrill-seeker. This tour overlooks a cave, rock cliffs, the Hocking River, and all the regions’ best flora and fauna. Your adventure will last from 2.5-3 hours while you scale and climb your way through the treetops on a network of cables and skybridges.  

The X-Tour is a professionally-guided hybrid course that lets you zipline into a recessed cave. You’ll fly through the skies on 11 zip lines that will cross you over the Hocking River twice for incredible water views. This adventure also lasts about 2.5-3 hours, so plan accordingly!

The SuperZip tour will have you reaching speeds of up to 50mph, zooming through the canopy for views you won’t want to miss. This tour is cost-effective too, if done on its own, or you can pair it with a tour package to get the full blood-pumping experience. 

The Dragonfly is designed to allow younger adventurers explore the canopy while parents relax and watch from the ground. Eight zip lines, three bridges, and a sky tunnel take your kiddo’s ziplining experience to new heights. 

Whichever tour you choose, you can rest assured that each includes all the necessary equipment and highly trained guides that any adventurer would need (Some even include a light snack to replenish any burned calories). So grab your friends or family, and head on down to Hocking Hills to experience a daring activity that provides some of the most breathtaking views available in Ohio.
