Cantwell Cliffs Area, Hocking Hills State Park
Description - Each Travel Region within Ohio has sophisticated urban neighborhoods, romantic cityscapes, unique history and a beautiful treasury of natural lands.

Attractions - The five Travel Regions of Ohio invite the outdoor enthusiast to enjoy rich European and Native American history, explore miles of multi-use trail that traverses industrial pathways from two centuries ago, speedboat across important water-supply reservoirs, view hundreds of neotropic songbirds during fall migrations, or camp under the stars where Union soldiers once trampled the ground.

Recreation - Recreations in Ohio are limited only by one's own imagination. From horseback riding to scuba diving, from nighttime catfishing to seasonal bird watching, the outdoor enthusiast will find it somewhere in Ohio. The long-distance Buckeye Trail traverses the backcountry while flood control dam walls redefine rapelling and rock climbing.

Climate - This state has four distinct seasons and a brilliant fall foliage display in it southern woods during mid October. Winter lasts from December through February with average temperatures near 25 degrees F. Low temperatures dip to single digits, but do not often drop below zero. Northern regions of the state receive average snowfall amounts of 55 inches, while the central and southern regions of the state receive lesser amounts with averages near 30 inches. This difference is caused by lake-affect moisture patterns.

Spring temperatures begin to warm the landscapes of Ohio by mid March and are in full swing by April. Temperatures range from 40 through 70 degrees F through the spring months. This season often brings the most rainfall, before the drying heat of summer. Summer can be extremely hot and humid in the interior of Ohio. Temperatures reach above 90 degrees F frequently through July and August. Cooler fall temperatures don't reach the region until mid to late September. This is a pleasant time to visit as the air is crisp with low humidity levels. Ohio's annual precipitation usually reaches slightly above 50 inches.

Location - Five travel regions comprise the State of Ohio.
