The Hockhocking Adena Bikeway is an enticing attraction to people of the southeastern Ohio community, especially the students of Hocking College. Beginning and ending directly on campus, the 19-mile paved path provides an easily accessible outlet for students, faculty and staff to exercise and explore.

Visitors not only enjoy the path's flourishing nature and wildlife scene, but many are fascinated by the area's ancient origin. The rich history of the path is embedded in its name. "Hockhocking," which means "bottleneck" or "twisted," was the native Indian name for the Hocking River; and Adena reflects the history of the Adena Indians who lived in the Hocking Valley more than 2,000 years ago.
