Vinton County Ohio
The Hocking Hills Region
extends through southeastern Ohio and spans across some of the most wild
and scenic sections of the Midwest. Tucked within the region and
nestled between the beautiful Appalachian hillsides, Vinton
County, Ohio offers visitors some of the best wildlife viewing
areas, birding spots and hiking. There are covered bridges to
discover and legends to explore, gourmet restaurants to tempt the
taste buds and parks to find. Vinton County is off the beaten path
and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Vinton County is home to five
restored covered bridges built between the mid to later 1800's.
Information on the covered bridges including a self-guided driving
tour is provided by Vinton County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Many natural areas and historic
features can be found in Vinton County. Once a big part of the
iron producing industry, many of the towns and businesses once
abundant during the 1800's are now no more than a scattering of
old foundations and abandoned railroad tracks. The infamous
Moonville Tunnel is found in Vinton County. It is said to be
haunted by the ghostly figure of a brakeman killed in the tunnel
by a train.
