Hockhocking Adena Bikeway

Located on the old Hocking Valley Railroad bed, the 19 mile Hockhocking Adena Bikeway offers a scenic connection between the cities of Athens and Nelsonville. The paved recreation trail is named in honor of the first inhabitants of this southeastern Ohio region. "Hockhocking," which means "bottleneck or twisted," was the Native American name for the Hocking River. "Adena" reflects the history of the Adena Indians who lived here over 2,000 years ago.

Points of interest on the bikeway include rock outcrops, scenic views of the Hocking River, spectacular displays of wildflowers, and numerous birds and other native wildlife. The path begins on the east side of Athens and winds around the campus of Ohio University and along the Hocking River. It also passes through a historic coal company town and a portion of Wayne National Forest before ending at Robbins Crossing, an authentic pioneer village.
