Beautiful Hills of Ohio Appalachian Country:
Seeking off Court activities? College student that has grown tired of the bar scene? Want to explore the infamous natural wonders Athens is known for, but don't necessarily categorize yourself as an "outdoorsy" person or an Ohio hiking trails professional? Simply interested in a new adventure? This modern app list will prepare you for your venture like a pro, without all the archaic tools a real trail-blazer would traditionally bring and know how to use properly (paper maps, compass, etc.).
It's no secret that one of southeast Ohio's biggest attractions is its beautiful scenery. In fact, I fell in love with Ohio University's campus in part because of how beautiful and peaceful it was. College can be incredibly stressful at times between balancing multiple classes, working part time, studying for exams, finishing group projects, and possibly maintaining a relationship. Luckily, there are numerous outdoor things to do in Athens, Ohio, to help relieve some of this anxiety.
With so many beautiful places to go enjoy the scenic landscape of rural appalachia, why not take advantage of the surrounding areas and make the most of your four (or five) years at Ohio University. Do yourself a favor, put down the books for an hour or two, grab a friend and check out some of these great southeast Ohio hiking trails.
