We're always looking for enthusiastic, skilled people to join the Hocking Hills Adventure Trek team. We make it easy for people to help out by fitting into their schedules. Whether you're available one day out of the week, month or year, if you're qualified and enthusiastic, we'd like to speak with you. And though we're rooted in the Hocking Hills, we now provide year-round nature programming anywhere in Ohio for groups of all types and sizes, on public or private property. In support of that, we look for the best and brightest naturalists across the state. Most of our guides are referred by another guide, so if you know someone who's already on the Trek team, consider asking him/her for a referral. Our guides are independent contractors of all ages and backgrounds — if this interests you, check below to see which positions are available right now. To express an interest, please call 740.777.2579 or send an email to BowersGuiding@gmail.com.
Lead Rock Climbing & Rappelling Guides
We're look for guides with professional training and experience at leading groups. Hocking College students and graduates who've taken the array of ropes courses offered, firemen and paramedics with NFPA training, retired military , individuals holding AMGA, SPRAT or IRATA certifications (or in the process of obtaining those certifications) are encouraged to contact us. If you're an outdoor enthusiast using ropes professionally, we'd like to hear from you.
Assistant Climbing & Rappelling Guides
Assistant climbing and rappelling guides with an extensive climbing resumé and excellent references should contact us and express an interest.
If you're an outgoing climber and familiar with the local terrain, we'd be happy to hear from you.
Lead Naturalist Guides
Our naturalists are passionate about nature and skilled at leading edible forest hikes and interpretive events that cover the local geology, biology, wildlife and stream / forest ecology.. You must have experience leading groups of 15 or more and be comfortable speaking in public situations. If you're an outdoor enthusiast and employed full-time, we'd like to hear from you even if you only have one day a month to contribute.
We're looking for assistant guides/sweepers who are passionate about trekking the Hocking Hills and are currently developing their interpretive guiding skills. Our assistant guides act as sweepers and sponges, providing assistance to participants, learning and contributing to the interpretive services and support. You'll take direction from the lead guide as needed.
