The whole week we spent here was amazing. We ended up on this trail several times going other place. It was a beautiful place and all the little plaques and information signs are very educational!

Hocking Hills is a fantastic place to hike. Many waterfalls, well taken care of trails. No charges but please donate at each one to keep this place as nice as it is.Old man cave was my favorite with Ash Cave coming in second. They even have a couple wheel chair trails.
