Ohio's southeastern corner cradles most of its forested areas, as well as the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and scattered farms. Parts are far prettier than you'd expect. The Hocking Hills region, near Logan, impresses with streams and waterfalls, sandstone cliffs and cave-like formations. Further on is Athens, a university town and the area's free-spirited hot spot. To the east, around Chillicothe, mysterious Native American mounds rise from the fields.
