Tom's Trillium Tour

A Great Ride That Starts at Hocking College, Goes South, and Loops back North


Quick Link to Directions and Notes for Each Option
 

There are five separate self guided tours from 26 to 97 miles through the rolling hills of Athens, Vinton and Meigs County. This makes for an excellent ride that you can adjust shorter or extend on the fly.

It is especially scenic in the springtime through the budding dogwood, redbud and wildflowers.
