Hocking Hills Haunted Tours and Night Hikes

Required Waiver Form for Hikes


Will be posted the week of the Moonville Hike to sign up. Hikers are limited so it is suggested to sign up for earlier hikes.

I am offering a last-minute night hike at Moonville Tunnel, telling local ghost stories followed by a ghost hunt at the famous and haunted tunnel. The hike and ghost hunt will take about 2 hours. I will be walking an out-and-back section of the Moonville Rail Trail, and those interested can hike with me from Moonville town proper to Ingham Station/Bear Hollow.
The hike is free. It is a little over 1.5miles one-way, a total of 3.0 miles on an easy, flat gravel railroad bed. It takes about 30-40 minutes to hike one way at a leisurely pace. However, we move steadily with a few short stops to hear the local ghost stories, so it may be too challenging for those with health issues, walking difficulties, or who are out of shape. It will be dark on the return. Bring a flashlight. No pets.
After, I’ll bring some ghost-hunting equipment so you can try a little ghost hunting in the tunnel. And if you wish to download some of the online “ghost hunting” apps like Ghost Tube, we can test to see if they mirror some of the tried-and-true tools used over time.

Bring water and a flashlight or cell phone for light. There are no restrooms.
Please check https://www.facebook.com/ohioghoststories/ on FB before coming for weather/flooding or other updates.

I will have some of my Ohio, West Virginia, and Appalachian hikes books available (including the Moonville book, Haunted Hocking Hills, and the Vinton County haunts) for purchase for ten bucks a piece but bring cash. There are no ATMs and the cell phone services are sketchy.

Under 18 must have a parent/guardian. (Parent/Legal Guardian of hikers under 18 must sign the waiver! A responsible adult/parent/guardian must hike with underage children).
