COLUMBUS, Ohio Hocking Hills sites are slated to reopen this summer after closing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said the Cantwell Cliffs and Rock House trails are scheduled to open June 15 at Hocking Hills State Park.

At Hocking State Forest — the horse camp, Airplane Rock, and the bridge trails north of the rappelling area will also open on June 15.

The bridle trails south of the rappelling area will remain closed for now.

ODNR said hikers will be directed to one-way travel on the trails, as long as it is possible to do so because of the landscape.

Trails, campground sites, cabin areas and other sites, such as Old Man’s Cave, will reopen later this summer.

ODNR said it will take new reservations for the campground and cabin areas with an arrival date of July 15 or later.

All reservations through June 30 will be automatically canceled and people will be issued a full refund.
