The Rock House is amazing!! I have said this in my other reviews of the HH parks, I LOVE the one-way trail systems. Easy walk to the cave, the uphill walk back can be tiresome but there are a couple benches along the way to stop and take a break if needed. I would recommend parking at the lot closest to the road, that is where the trail ends. After hiking back up the hill it is nice to be close to the car, lol. I would recommend wearing good shoes and taking a small flashlight. It is very slippery inside the cave and it can be hard to see all of your footing once inside. We went on a late Saturday morning, was not terribly crowded.

Not a bad hike and the cave was interesting- most enclosed space here by far- not an overhanging wall and ceiling of rock but rather an enclosed space much like but not a true cave. Tight squeeze to get in and yes it's a bit dark inside so a flashlight or use of your phone would help with better footing while inside. Appears to be a hangout for pigeons as we saw several of them nesting inside the place.
Consider parking at the bottom lot to the left of the entrance rather than driving up the hill to park. You'll thank yourself after completing the hike as the last climb out can tire you a bit. You won't face the walk across the bottom lot and back up the hill to get to your car.

Out of all the hikes we did in Hocking Hills this was our favorite. The scenery looked like something out of the movie Pandora, the rock house is a pretty cool cave that you can walk through and enjoy the amazing creation of water and time. We took our 7, 8, and 10 year old daughters. they did really well. The cliffs are very steep so you must pay attention to them and where you are walking.

Rock House in Logan is one of the best attractions in Hocking Hills State Park.  Rock House is actually a tunnel cave through which one can walk end to end.  A one-way trail starting from the parking lot takes one down to the cave, but the return is uphill.  Steps are built into the rock where the grade is steep along the trail.  The trail is short (less than a mile), but the surrounding scenery is beautiful with cliffs and greenery.  

Rock House is a beautiful trail with an amazing feature as a reward for little effort.  I really enjoyed this trail, and took lots of pictures.  Do not miss a stop here when you visit Hocking Hills.

The Rock House hike was very enjoyable.

The hike took us about an hour. We were not in a rush and stopped several times to enjoy the scenery. The Rock House is really a cave and a cool sight to see.

The facilities here a more primitive than the beautiful Visitor's Center at Old Man's Cave. It's a little more off the beaten path than Old Man's Cave, and on the day we visited both, the crowds were smaller at Rock House.

So if you'd like to take a laid-back hike to see a cave and other beautiful scenery, I highly recommend Rock House.

This house/cave was a must see! It is medium difficulty but well worth it. Just hard to believe something this beautiful was done by nature alone! Park at the first larger lot to do the red trail that leads to the yellow trail to finish up. (Modified due to COVID19) it can get steep at some spots so we just slowed down and took our time. Need good hiking shoes and your cell phone for a light to seen while inside the ‘house’. Not a lot of water around but there were still puddles around that made some parts slippery.

Rock House is an interesting part of the Hocking Hills Region. If you are into Caving and Hiking then this is the place for you. This isn't a super easy hike, so be sure you have your water and a great pair of shoes! There is plenty of beautiful landscape along the way down and back up! Plenty of steps and uneven walking paths as well. Rock House is beautiful, TIP: bring a flashlight to help you see inside of it. There are also small pigeons that nest inside of Rock House! Watch for those. Many people do bring their dogs on the hike! We visited to write up a piece for Visit Ohio Today (dot) com

We visited Rock House early on a weekday morning and found it quaintly quiet and solitary. We were able to spend time walking it end to end once inside, taking in the beautiful colors of the rocks within (bring a flashlight to light it up!), perusing all the names and dates carved on the rocks...found one dated 1876 which made us think what it might have been like for visitors so long ago. Be prepared for some steep steps. Take your time and wear the right footwear!

Reviews scared us a little but had done Gregs caves in Tobermory Ontario a few years back so gave it a shot. In our sixties and an older couple it looked like eighties was ahead of us gave us encouragement. Not bad just some tricky uneven footing here and there.
Dark in cave, light on phone barely adequate.
Monday 6/13/22 hot and 75 dew point like a sauna. Cool in cave. About .3 a mile down and same back up. Sweated our buns off but rewarding.!

Great gorge/rim hike to a big cave in the Hocking Hills. I think this was the only real cave we saw (most of the others are overhangs). That being said, there are openings on several sides so it has natural light and you don't feel enclosed. Also, you don't really even notice that there's a large cave structure up the gorge wall once you are away from it. I keep track of all my hikes with Strava, which said this was a 1.08mile hike with 282ft of elevation gain that lasted 28 minutes. Parking is free and the trail is accessible from either of the two parking lots (we chose to start at the one up the hill).
