The Hocking Hills Indian Run trail winds through vast wooded areas of the Hocking Hills State Park (HHSP) and the Hocking State Forest, crossing small streams, uphill and down. The route covers some dirt roadways and pavement. The deep gorges shimmering waterfalls and lush forests provide the ultimate challenge to your powers of concentration. Choose between 60K, 40K, 20K, 10K, and 5K runs. The 60k run (37.28 miles) steps off at 7 a.m. The 40k race (24.85 miles) will begin at 8 a.m. The other races (5k, 10k and 20k) are individual starts between 9 and 11 a.m. Each runner has an individual start and finish time recorded for them.

The 20k, 40k and 60k races start at the Naturalist Cabin. (The 60k trail follows the 20k trail three times; the 40k follows it twice.) The path runs through the Hocking Hills State Park Cottages, onto Route 664, up Steel Hill Road, along Chapel Ridge Road, then into the Hocking Hills State Forest on the Queer Ridge Trail. From here it passes through the Cedar Falls area in Hocking Hills State Park, through the forest to Rose Lake, through the Old Man’s Cave campground, over the A-Frame Bridge at Old Man’s Cave, past the Naturalist’s Cabin at the Old Man’s Cave Visitors Center, then up the hill back toward the Dining Lodge. Water stops are located at Steel Hill/Chapel Ridge Road, Cedar Falls parking lot, at the beginning of the Campground and at the Naturalist’s Cabin. Water stops are manned beginning at 8 a.m. so 60k’ers are invited to “stash” their own water/snacks around the course if that would be helpful to them. Fruit and water are available to 60k’ers at the Naturalist Cabin as they pass by.

10k runners meet at the Hocking Hills Naturalist Cabin to register for the race. They are transported by bus to the start location, which is near Top O the Caves Campground on Chapel Ridge Road in Hocking County. From here the trail passes through the Cedar Falls area in Hocking Hills State Park, through the forest to Rose Lake, through the Old Man’s Cave campground, over the A-Frame Bridge at Old Man’s Cave, past the Naturalist’s Cabin at the Old Man’s Cave Visitors Center, then up the hill back toward the Dining Lodge. Water stops are located at the Cedar Falls parking lot, the beginning of the Camp Ground and at the Naturalist’s Cabin.

They are transported by bus to the start location, which is at the Fisherman’s Parking Lot near Rose Lake on State Route 374 in Hocking County. From here the trail goes through the forest to Rose Lake, through the Old Man’s Cave campground, over the A-Frame Bridge at Old Man’s Cave, past the Naturalist’s Cabin at the Old Man’s Cave Visitors Center, then up the hill back toward the Dining Lodge.
