Butterfly Ridge In Hocking Hills Is An Enchanted Place For Beautiful, Native Butterflies

Nestled in the Hocking Hills region, Butterfly Ridge is a butterfly conservation center focusing on the health and well being of butterflies native to southeastern Ohio.

The garden officially opened back in July 2017 and they’ve been captivating visitors with their enchanted space ever since. The garden is located within a 21-acre property that has been in the owners family since 1863. Christopher and Kris Kline have worked hard to create a peaceful place where butterflies, moths, and other pollinators can thrive.

Butterfly Ridge is open every day except Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. There are guided tours each day at 1 and 3 p.m. or if you prefer, you can walk the one mile trail on your own.

Butterfly Ridge is located just 5 minutes from Conkle’s Hollow State Nature Preserve and less than 10 minutes from Hocking Hills State Park.
