From gorges to waterfalls, and rock shelters to cliffs, natural beauty abounds in Hocking Hills State Park. The massive park is split into five sections, named for their top features: Old Man’s Cave, Cedar Falls, Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, and Rock House. The most popular, Old Man’s Cave, is a deep gorge named for one of its early inhabitants, recluse Richard Rowe who made the cave his home in the late 1700s. Many companies offer organized activities such as canoeing, horseback riding, and ziplining. You can also choose to make use of the many hiking trails, fishing spots, or fully equipped campgrounds.

What a beautiful place to be! My family and I had an awesome adventure on every trail there. The trails offer something for everyone. You could hike the long trails to each cave. Or you could drive around and hike a shorter distance. Whichever you prefer you will be greeted with amazing views. We also played a few holes on the disc golf course. That was pretty nice as well.
This is the best state park in Ohio by far. beautiful hiking trails and plenty of scenic overlooks. Old mans cave is usually pretty busy but there’s plenty of other areas to go hike such as Ash Cave and Rock House.
