Today, the Hocking Hills region town of Zaleski is a hub of tourism as modern day people enjoy hiking, biking, boating and much more in an area of spectacular natural beauty. Within walking distance are the Zaleski State Forest, three Native American burial mounds, and one trailhead of the newly opened Moonville Rail Trail. About four miles away is Lake Hope with a well-known mountain bike trail and a beautiful lake for fishing and boating (you can rent boats.) In the summer the Lake Hope Nature Center sponsors a nationally-known hummingbird program. Just a bit farther are the supposedly haunted Moonville Tunnel (just one of our ghost stories) and all of the Hocking Hills State Parks. And Vinton County has five covered bridges, including one you can still drive across. On the way you'll also see one of Vinton County's Quilt Barns. See Vinton County travel information at the link below. You'll find maps and plenty of brochures and other information in the house when you arrive. Depending on your interests, you can easily fill a few days enjoying nature and the history of a rural area where you can still see the stars at night.ATTRACTIONS:
