Over the next three weekends, Hocking Hills wishes to share more than just its natural bounty with you—by way of comfort food. Ten of the region’s restaurants have teamed up to fill you up on breakfast burritos with house-made sausage, biscuits and gravy, chicken and noodles, berry cobbler, and the like, plus the welcome center will be dishing out cinnamon rolls and a souvenir measuring spoon. The set-up is simple: You buy a comfort food cruise ticket for $15 ($5 of which goes to local food banks), then at your leisure go try the dish on offer at each of the stops. Our recommended palate cleanser? Go hiking between courses. The winter landscape in Hocking Hills can’t be beat—we love the caves—and what better motivation to explore than making room for more food? All aboard.
