By June 19, 2019January 28th, 2021No Comments

As another week passes us by…

Summer officially begins this Friday!

Here at Cherry Ridge Retreat, the signs of summer are starting to show. Our tiny goslings are growing up, the baby barn swallows are chirping and trying out their wings and this year’s new fawns are starting to explore the property! Everywhere is green and all this rain is certainly helping! This week we’ve got plenty to get up to in the Hills, so lets jump right in!



Monday-Saturdays 8pm, Chillicothe

Make sure you check out the breathtaking outdoor drama experience, Tecumseh! A summertime tradition, this exciting historical drama is a must see event! Seated beneath the stars, get lost as the story-line unfolds all around you. You can hear the horses galloping right past you as enjoy the most exciting theater show you will ever experience! Showing every day except Sundays, running now through September. Show starts at 8pm. Reserve your tickets online here


Summer Solstice Hike

Friday, June 21, 11am at Rose Lake

Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, the official marker for the shift from Spring to Summer. On this guided hike with state Naturalists, take some time to enjoy the beauties of Hocking Hills in Summer. Explore Rose Lake and learn about the local plant life and history! Meet at the Rose Lake, hike begins at 11am. 


Flaming Torchlight Tour of Hocking

Saturday, June 22nd, beginning at 7-8pm. 

Enjoy the quiet peace of the Hocking river at nightfall. A flaming torch leads the way in the head canoe, so have no fears of getting lost! Rather let yourself enjoy the croaking of the frogs and ever present ringing chirp of the crickets and grasshoppers. Live music will be featured after the trip, with a bonfire and -best of all!- s’mores will be provided! Check out Hocking Hills Canoeing for more information!


Rock at Rockside

Saturday, June 22nd, 1pm & 4pm

Enjoy the breathtaking geology of Ohio’s unique Rock House formation then enjoy some family friendly, toe-tapping live music of Johnny Ohio at the Shelter House. Johnny Ohio’s sound is self described as “a little twang of rockabilly, a little flavoring of folk and a twist of his own.” A fun way to take in both the nature and culture of Ohio’s Hocking Hills!


That should be enough to keep you busy this week! Make sure to take some time to relax and breathe in the fresh Hocking Hills air! Stop by next week to see What’s Happening in Hocking Hills!
