Happily, my 19 year-old daughter and 10-year-old son were included in this outing as I gathered info for a travel article I'm writing this month. The first time I came here four years ago, I knew my kids would love it. They did.
Unlike the last time, when I was part of a press trip, this excursion was the chance to interact with folks who are not writers --a family of four celebrating the 16 year-old daughter's birthday and a couple who I assume are just dating. Let's just say they kissed every so often.
Like the first time I took this trip, the guides were terrific. Josh and Jake made sure that we were securly fastened each time we headed out from one tree to the next. Josh also pointed out the details of this slice of Hocking Hills and what was significant about each leg of our three-hour tour.

Although this was a freebie for us courtesy of Hocking Hills Canopy Tour, if you can swing the cost, go. For a family, this is a wonderful way to spend time with your kids.
My son was the youngest in our group. Age 10 is the youngest a child can be in order to do this zipline. There's no upper age limit. The oldest person so far has been 94.
