Ohio – Great Outdoors

Get your outdoor adventure fix in Ohio

When it comes to outdoor adventures in Ohio, the changing seasons make it a year-round destination. Plan to hike along some of the hundreds of miles of trails in Ohio's national and state parks in the spring, or take a summer camping trip to the state's canoe capital in Loudonville and canoe along the Mohican River. Zipline through a treetop canopy in southern Ohio in autumn as the colours of leaves are changing to brilliant orange and red. Popular things to do in winter include skiing, ice fishing, and snowmobiling on dedicated trails along Lake Erie.

No matter how you choose to get your outdoor adventure fix, Ohio is a great place to do it. With more than 74 state parks, 50 rivers, 130 state nature preserves, and a seasonally changing landscape, no two visits are the same.
