Far and away, the most experienced guides in the Hocking Hills


2020 marks our 10th year in business and we're celebrating!    TrekNetwork offers easy access to nature that never looks the same twice. We're adventure guides, naturalists, artists and team building experts. With over forty professional guides we offer a huge variety of outdoor recreation and experiential learning activities for couples, families and groups of all kinds. 


Every trek we offer is a nature experience led by guides who explain the geology, biology, forest edibles and wildlife as you go.  They foster enthusiasm for nature and create individualized treks that everyone will enjoy.  Our lead guides for climbing and rappelling include American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) certified Single Pitch instructors (SPI's).

Our US Archery certified archery instructors create fun, friendly interactive events with friendly competition.  Our certified naturalists guide five different hikes across 10,000 acres of state forest and park land.


Our treks are fun, relaxed, interactive, adventurous and educational.   Most of our treks occur in the Hocking State Forest.  It's a much larger space and takes time to explore.  State forest land is also more relaxed allowing us to get off the beaten path, avoid crowds, discover hidden gems, sample and collect things where permitted, climb, hike, rappel, discover and enjoy.  Find your way around with us and you're free to return on your own and share it with others.


Whether you're flying solo, visiting as a couple or family or gathering together with friends or business colleagues everything we do is a private event just for your group.  Treks can be booked as stand alone events or combined to create unique outings that will appeal to everyone.  We trek year-round and today is a great day to be in the woods!
