Loudonville is sleep town tucked away in the forests of Mohican Country. Don’t let its size fool you however—it might have more outdoor attractions than any other small town in Ohio. Between its natural scenery, history and activities you’ll find something for everyone.
If you are looking for an easy-going water adventure the canoes, kayaks and tubes at the Loudonville Canoe Livery and River Room might just be the ticket. If you are looking for something dryer, the Mohican State Park, noted as one of the most beautiful in Ohio, has plenty of trails available.
Besides its many foot trails there are 22 miles of bride trails and 25 miles of biking trails. If you are looking for an extended stay in Loudonville the cabins, cottages and primitive camping sites at the State Park are a great option. There is also a not to be missed waterfall the Big Lyons Falls, if you are up for the moderate to difficult 2 mile round trip hike. The park also includes the historic Wolf Creek Gist Mill which was built around 1831. Tours of the mill and the reconstructed 1800’s era log cabins are available.
If you are looking for something a bit more modern and indoors the quaint downtown includes plenty of local shops and restaurants (the most well-known being the Hanover House Diner). There is also the Cleo Red Fisher Museum all about the frontier, industrial and forest history of the town.
Whether you are looking for a day trip or an extended vacation with plenty to do, look no further than this tiny Ohio town.
