Amazing! I can’t believe this is in Ohio. The hike itself starts by going down a dirt path, with a few steep cliffs on the sides. Be sure that you are holding onto your children and dogs. Eventually you descend rock steps which could be difficult if you have bad knees. This isn’t a flat trail. You then enter the cAve. It was really crowded when we were there, but still amazing. You come out of the cave you then have a long up hill climb. It wasn’t steep and there were not any steps, but it was long. My Covid couch out of shape self was panting by the end but it didn’t kill me. This hike shouldn’t be missed!

Rock House is very interesting and has a great history. The Rock House is worth the hike. Lots of steps/stairs but not too treacherous of a hike.

As close to a “cave” as you are going to get. A lot of cool history as well. Less than a mile round trip from the parking lot.

One-of-a-kind nature experience! The hike in was somewhat short-1/2 to 3/4 mile one-way, but I would say 3/4 of the trail was moderate in difficulty (especially for seniors like us!) but SO worth the effort! The Rock House was amazing! It was a good sized cave with beautifully colored rocks- reds & greens; tons of crevices, holes etc. Bring a flashlight & explore! Enjoy!

Rock House was the most unique of the Hocking Hills Hiking areas as it boasted incredible enclosed walk through's that created the most breathtaking scenery! I love how the hikes allow you the freedom to go inside and explore at your own risk. We were lucky enough to go during a time when there were hardly any other hikers (January), so we were able to capture photos without people!
