Mohican Ablaze with Color

Mohican in the fall is on fire, with color of course. The leaves are transforming the hills of Mohican into a brand-new landscape full of reds, yellows, and oranges. Local farmers’ markets have pumpkins, mums, and more, out and ready to sell. Visitors are amazed at the view of the Clearfork Gorge Overlook as it changes to a sea of color each day. It truly is a sight to behold.

As the Camp & Canoe Capital of Ohio, canoeing is not over. What a treat to float down the Mohican State Scenic River under an arbor of color. Some of the canoe liveries are open through October. It is a perfect time to grab a camera with family and friends and enjoy the serenity of the river.

Fall is full of activities that will keep everyone having fun while enjoying all there is to offer. Whether staying for a week or weekend, discover why Mohican rocks any time of year. Stay in a treehouse, castle, resort, inn, historic bed & breakfast, or a choice of one of many private cabins. Several of the private cabins or cottages have hot tubs and spectacular views; all the amenities of home and some even pet friendly.

On September 3rd, Pleasant Hill Lake Park will host their annual Labor Day Fireworks. Loudonville will also be holding its Mohican Traditions Festival downtown.

The Mohican Bluegrass Festival returns to Mohican Wilderness Campground September 15th-17th. Also taking place September 16th-17th is Hostetler Log Homes Log Cabin Days. And wrapping up the weekend is the 37th Annual Great Mohican Pow-Wow at Mohican Reservation Campground.

Plenty of events are happening this fall, such as the Loudonville Street Fair, October 4th-8th. Family fun and affordable, with five days of free admission, free entertainment, food, rides, and more.

The Mohican Fall Foliage Drive-It-Yourself Tour October 16th-30th: Take a leisurely drive through the Mohican State Park and the Mohican-Memorial State Forest during the season’s peak. Hike or bike the trails and enjoy nature as the trees and wildlife prepare for winter. Then enjoy time at the restaurants and independent stores. Visit for a map and more information.

October also brings in ghost enthusiasts at Landoll’s Mohican Castle.  Throughout the year, they offer public Ghost Walks. These walks will take one through the property’s history and allow the opportunity to communicate with the “other side” by using ‘tools of the trade.’ For those wanting to go more in-depth, ask about the possibility of a Ghost Hunt. This will take several hours and permits the visitor to conduct a paranormal investigation.

During November and December, make sure to plan an individualized adventure in Mohican. Fishing, outdoor sports, and more occur all year long. Hiking trails are open to the public year-round at the Mohican State Park.  Skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing are available at nearby Snow Trails Ski Resort.

All of this and more await – discover why Mohican rocks!
