Our Mission

Hiking in Ohio

We have one mission - to get more Ohioans moving in the beautiful Ohio outdoors. Whether you run, walk, bike, ride, swim or roll, there is a trail or other outdoor venue that can help you achieve the Explore Ohio Challenge. Join us today as we all strive to #ExploreOhio.

After completing any outdoor activity, Ohioans can log their miles on the ExploreOhio website. Users can utilize the site to track their own miles and also log miles together with friends, family, coworkers, etc. using the groups feature of the site. Participants will earn online badges after reaching key milestones, and are encouraged to shape their experience using the hashtag #ExploreOhio on social media. After reaching 100 combined miles of activity on the site, each registered user will receive an email with a certificate good for 15% off camping at any Ohio State Park.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is joining First Lady Karen Kasich in the effort to challenge all Ohioans to get outside and #ExploreOhio. Happiness, joy and excitement…you can find it here as you discover Ohio’s outdoors and make lasting memories with your family.
