Hocking Valley Scenic Railway is certainly a destination worth experiencing.
You can find it in Athens, which is approximately 55 miles (89 kilometers) from the state capital, Columbus.
The good thing about only having 1 hotel close by is that it's very hard to mix up your bookings! From Bessemer Hostel, it's just 2 miles (3 kilometers) to Hocking Valley Scenic Railway.
Whether you're a tea connoisseur or a coffee addict, you might need something to keep you going. A short stroll from Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, FullBrooks Cafe provides an enticing variety of beverages and treats.
